    I found a solution to a big problem I think many users are having on build 10532. Since the build came out, I had a bunch of issues with mouse cursor placement in Edge and Groove Music. Basically, I would point my mouse cursor over a link, but Edge / Groove though my mouse was pointing to something 2, 3, 4 inches below. huge pain.

    I also noticed that when I brought cortana up by click on the icon or input bar, Cortana would come up, but I couldn't scroll at all.

    The reason? Avast anti-virus. I did a hard reset and for the first time logging in I noticed both issues were not there. after i installed avast did i notice the issues come back. a quick uninstall and voila - the issues disappeared.

    For those looking for a new antivirus solution (atleast until Avast updates their app), I would suggest Comodo Internet Security, which includes an anti-virus. I've been using their firewall for years and now will be using their AV.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi,
    i am using Avast since Build 10130 and never had any problems with it. So maybe it is also hardware related and only occures on specific PCs.

    Nope! The new build of windows 10 (build 10532 just came out) and avast are not happy neighbors. All of the things mentioned have just been found to occur if avast is loaded on the system. Id advise the first dude to go and turn on system restore as well because the new build disables that permanently without your knowledge. The best thing to do would be to revert to the previous build until avast updates their program.

    Off topic, but what value is Avast bringing your over Windows Defender? I used Avast and others for years, but never liked all the nagging and up-selling from those products.

    Windows Defender has been pretty decent - just wondering if you find one better than the other?

    I like Avast because it has more bells, whistles and guns. Defender is prettybasic and works. Id use that if you don't care for fancy web shields and boot time scanning. I put it in gaming mode which suppresses most dialogs so there's that at least.

    Cool - I like a combination of Defender and Malwarebytes anti-exploit for zero day browser attacks. I have used a lot of products over the years and this combination has been rock solid for me....

    Options are good!
