      Avira has updated its very short response to the six dirty patches/five broken AVs problem. Their KB 1976 now says: We have looked into the issue that

      Updated five Win 7 Pro x64 machines yesterday, 30 APR (Group “B”); four run Avira Free AV (updated 29 APR).  Zero problems.

      It’s not Microsoft’s responsibility to fix an Avira issue.  If Avira has their endpoint solution doing things incorrectly within the OS they don’t need to acknowledge that either.  Don’t use buggy AV software and problem is solved.

        Agreed – if the AV companies were using hooks into the OS that they shouldn’t have been using, it’s not Microsoft’s fault, and MS is under no obligation to change things to accommodate them.

        The problem is that the advice from Avira and the advice from Microsoft is substantially different. MS doesn’t link to the Avira discussion. There’s no mention of Avira on the Win10 1809 page (as there is in all nine of the other patches’ pages). And MS claims that it’s still blocking the dirty six (now nine) on machines running Avira.

        In other words, the problem isn’t with the bits. It’s with the writeup.
