Problem with Windows 10 May 2020 update and BT Virus Protect
I was wondering if anyone else has had the following issue?
After installing the Windows 10 May 2020 feature update and re-booting, the BT Virus Protect / McAfee real-time scanning failed to start and repeatedly telling it to start (and the odd reboot) had no effect. After uninstalling the update, the real-time scanner resumed working okay!
Next time I will probably try uninstalling and re-isntalling BT Virus Protect (failed this time due to being unable to find the BT download page yesterday due to BT's dismally out-of-date so-called "Help" pages).
I've now put a 7 day hold on the update on the affected computer and another one that isn't yet elligble for the update. This is very disturbing and also had a nasty effect on another piece of software, which clearly wasn't left in its original state after the install and uninstall.
