Fix- antivirus gone after windows update

Antivirus protection in the age of technology is a must-have thing. and since windows 10 is out there in almost every new windows computer there have been many issues and Microsoft is still working on them.

Personal experience– before you start doing anything let me just tell you if it is a windows 10 computer then all blame goes to Microsoft. they have created windows where they want to rule the world.

After every windows 10 update, there is a new problem and we have been testing Windows 10 on multiple computers. but we think that every good thing comes up with some dis-advantage.

Windows performs a compatibility check If the check finds the anti-virus software installed is not compatible with Windows.

It is automatically uninstalled we would suggest you go download another copy of your antivirus, deactivate the windows defender if it is blocking the antivirus.

Step 1-

Re-install your “Antivirus” using CD or download it from the official website of antivirus and Check it gets activate and runs properly. If it does not install then You may have to run your Antivirus Removal Tool.

We have seen this issue with avg antivirus a lot read this also – https://fixingblog.com/avg-antivirus-not-working-giving-hard-time-users/

Just to clean and remove any older version of antivirus please and then Re-install the software.

Note : – Do not reinstall an old version from an old download or an old CD, as it most likely won’t be compatible with Windows 10.


  • Install the latest version of your antivirus protection.
  • and your antivirus should automatically appear and active
  • Windows upgrade will keep this information inside (presumably) the Windows Registry.
  • you won’t have to re-enter the license during a Reinstall but if it’s not there
  • then you can always get the license key from the email or try login to your antivirus account

  1. I had the same problem when I upgraded. my friends advised to uninstall the current version of avg (keep your certificate registration) and then re-install. I did this and it worked — avg desktop icon is there and “Safe Money” feature is available
