This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Windows 10 compatibility issues with third-party antivirus products
That means free or paid antivirus apps, by the way.In case you were wondering, both of these security firms are
actually one and the same in terms of their antivirus engine, since Avast bought out AVG three years ago.
Microsoft noted on the November 2019 Update’s status page:
“To safeguard your upgrade experience, we have applied a hold on devices with affected Avast and AVG Antivirus from being offered or installing Windows 10, version 1903 [May 2019 Update] or Windows 10, version 1909 [November 2019 Update], until the application is updated.”
So the fix, as noted, is simply to update your Avast or AVG product (or you can reinstall the app) You really should, of course, always make sure all your software is fully up-to-date anyway (especially security apps).
