Process Trust Error During Avast Installation

The error message appears when a user tries to install Avast on Windows 10. The ‘Trusted Process’ error pop-up message appears saying ‘Avast does not trust Avast Installer’. In simple terms, you can’t install Avast on your computer. The error is due to a conflict between Avast and your antivirus program. To fix this problem, turn off antivirus now and try installing Avast again. Now, you will not have any problems.

Avast Antivirus not updating

Unfortunately, Avast failed to update the software for the virus. This is a major issue and so your computer may be exposed to the latest threats.

If you can’t install the latest Avast update, follow the following tricks:

  • Update Operating System. If you are opening an older version of Windows, it prevents other apps and programs from running properly. From the Settings menu to Update & Security. Go to the Windows Update option and check for updates.
  • You can also disable the firewall or VPN temporarily. The firewall also prevents you from installing the latest software updates on your device. Go to the Start option and enter the ‘firewall.’ Double-click on ‘Windows Firewall’ and select the option ‘Turn Windows Windows off and on.’ Disable firewall protection settings.
  • Another tip is to clean your computer. It will allow you to start Windows 10 with a minimal program and driver. Typically, software conflicts block Avast from updating. This will remove any software conflicts that are the common cause of this problem. Follow these steps:
  • Go to the search box and type System Configuration. Click on Enter
  • Select the Hide all Microsoft services checkbox in the Services Tab. Click Turn off everything.
  • Go to the Startup tab and click on the Open Task Manager.
  • In Task Manager click on all items and select Disable.
  • Close the Task Manager now.
  • In the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, click OK.
  • Now restart your computer and update Avast.
