Some headway has been made to support Microsoft’s latest Windows update with Arcabt and Avast releasing emergency fixes – but for many other antivirus firms, the latest round of Windows updates is still causing many PCs to become unstable and fail to boot.

Microsoft is still blocking the update from installing on those PCs that are detected to run the troublesome antivirus packages. Those still without final resolutions remain:

  • Sophos
  • Avira
  • McAfee

While Microsoft continues to work with the antivirus vendors, guidance for temporarily resolving problems has been released from some of them:

Sophos support article

Arcabit support article

Avast support KB article

McAfee Security (ENS) Threat Prevention 10.x

McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention (Host IPS) 8.0

Note that these issues only affect Windows 7 users.
