Windows 10 Anniversary Update crashing under Avast antivirus update

Avast! is the problem here. They were recently acquired by AVG (yes, them) and since v11 Avast has rushed in (premium) Beta 'features', removed the RA tool in v12 and I now suspect the AVG codemonkeys are starting to have their way with the product as well.

To be fair it was going down the tubes before AVG acquired them and AVG haven't made a product that I'd rate that even works on Windows since v7.5 on XP.

Both companies concentrated on looking nice while adding yet another mouth to the rim of the cup that is your metadata.
