Tried update this morning but hit a snag on restart with following error:

'AvLaunch.exe - Bad Image'. Message goes onto to state this relates to C:\Windows\system32\cssguard64.dll and results in the error code 0xc000022. Alert says the dll file is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error and that you should try reinstalling the software which is generating the error (Avast). Tried uninstalling / reinstalling Avast with same result. Also tried installing AVG Free instead of Avast Free but get an identical error with AVG. Rolled back to a backup I made yesterday - v22.6 v which works fine.

Left a post on Avast's forum so maybe I'll get some feedback there (or here).

Avast responded to above...

"Avast self-defense is preventing 3rd party (non MS) module injection (Comodo in this case) into Avast processes since version 22.7. The 0xc000022 is STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED, which is expected. But this blockage should be silent (no message box). We are investigating this.

Thank you for reporting this"

Interestingly I've not run any Comodo software for quite some time so this file is a remnant left behind when software uninstalled... it's gone now though :)
