Possible conflict between Malwarebytes and Avast

Recommended Posts

We've been informed on the developers channel that a microfix was released by Avast an hour ago.

The microfix is provided by the Avast Emergency Updater which is run automatically from task scheduler every 12 hours and a few minutes after system boot.

You can get this update immediately by rebooting and waiting ~ 5 minutes, otherwise it will arrive automatically in 12 hours (max) or you can execute:

schtasks.exe /Run /TN "Avast Emergency Update"

That's excellent news, thanks for the info.  I would love to hear from any Avast users after applying the update to verify that the issue is now resolved.

Had some work to complete before I could get to testing this, but the fix seems good.

I can also confirm that the latest Avast update seems to have resolved the conflict issues.

Avast program version 18.6.2349  (build 18.6.3983.0).

Thanks to all at Malwarebytes and Avast for sorting this out.
