Avira recently rolled out an important patch to fix the bugs introduced by the recent April 2019 Patch Tuesday updates. The patch solved the update issues for both Windows 7 and Windows 10 users.

Microsoft already has a bad reputation as far as the Windows Updates are concerned. The company was still struggling to cope up with the bad image caused by Windows 10 October Update.

Unfortunately, the latest Patch Tuesday updates turned out to be another blow to Microsoft’s reputation. 

PCs running Avira failed to boot after update

Many Windows 10 users started reporting booting issues shortly after Microsoft rolled out the April 2019 updates. The company investigated the issues and confirmed that some antivirus products were triggering the problem.

The big M worked with Avira and identified the glitch that caused Windows PCs to become unresponsive after a reboot.

However, the bug only affected users running Avira Antivirus software on Windows 7 and 8.1. Microsoft immediately responded to the reports and temporarily blocked the Windows 10 May 2019 update on affected devices. 

No more update issues

Avira released an update to fix the issue once and for all. The security vendor confirmed that the issue also impacted Windows 10 users.

The company says that the update (KB4493509) will be automatically downloaded on your systems. Initially, most users uninstalled Windows 10 April 2019 Update after hearing about the issues.

Windows Insiders are currently testing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. The new OS version is expected to land by the end of this month. Hopefully, we will be facing fewer issues this time around.
