How do you exclude single files in avast? I see an option for folders but not files unless I overlooked it?
Take a look at this picture of the file shield exclusions, it shows files as excluded. It is from a Dec 2011 thread in the Avast forum. See if the picture helps you to figure this out. If it doesn't help, I ll install Avast under TF to check it out myself. I hate installing Avast but for you, I ll make it a pleasure.MRF71 said:I'm not seeing anything that will exclude a single file Bo, just folders
I'm talking about file shield btw...now the BB has an option for trusted process's but not file shield
Hi Stranger, I know MRFT wants to exclude a file. Look at the bottom the picture, the user excluded file "videofixer.exe".Stranger said:Hi bo, its does except the whole folder and MRF71 wants to exclude a single file not folder
more or less the same as above post but maybe this will help???Stranger said:Nopes you cannot exclude exe file from above method but only folder can be excluded,dont know how in screenshot its appearing excluding vlc.exe.
MRF71: The easiest way is to manually write the name of file you want to exlude in exclusion option.
Don't mention to write full path.
Thanks all I had to copy and paste the path in exclusions and all is wellbo.elam said:My XP is an HP. Antiviruses have a thing with HPs, there are many HP files that are detected by antiviruses including KillWind.exe. Those detections are false positives. The two screenshots shows KillWind.exe being excluded during the full scan and by the File shield. Just write the path.
