Has anyone received a later update than 1.139.124.0, did it work?

2 Lenovo Laptops running W7-64 Pro with (free) Avast. No problems until 124 showed up. Windows Defender appears to work OK.

I think the patch data are faulty. I posted my observations on Microsoft Community (scroll down to "strawbeard").
