Security vendor Avast has recently released updates for its security products in order to resolve issues experienced by customers after installing the latest Windows 7 and 8.1 monthly rollups.

The April 9 Patch Tuesday monthly rollups and security-only updates for Windows 7 (KB4493472 and KB4493448) and Windows 8.1 (KB4493467, and KB4493446) caused devices running Avast security software to freeze on boot and become unresponsive.

I love everything to do with Microsoft Windows, and the new Windows 10 is great so far. I love to spend my time researching on how viruses and bacteria work in my personal lab. I also enjoy history and comics.
