Agree, it's not as if there is just the safe web, there is the password thing and Norton search, it seems recently the option to say No (or even go & ....off) no has been taken away in most things its either yes or remind me later. I found install it then disable, not a ideal solution though.
which is extension of the file? Avast by default only scans certain extensions in realtime protection, if there is no extension or the extension is not in the list, it will be ignoredAvast seems unable to deal with a threat on the desktop.The file is malicious and reported by avast on VT,yet no reaction from avast in real time.
Only when I right click scan with avast does it detect the threat...Is this a known issue or the way avast works!?

Thanks!!which is extension of the file? Avast by default only scans certain extensions in realtime protection, if there is no extension or the extension is not in the list, it will be ignored
On-demand scanner supports all extensions + heuristic level is set to High by default
you can enable avast to support all extension on realtime protection
I think avast is very good only with proper combination. In my test, I only combine hardened mode aggressive + syshardener exclusively, they will stop almost all malwares in the hub except for some malwares which has the extensions of .com, .bat, .cmd, .ps1Thanks!!
It's a .js extention.
Okay so I will change the settings you recommend.
Overall avast seems to be very good..What are your thoughts?
It's always a problem, I use Revo Uninstaller to scrub system, seems to do good job even removing register keys.For all 3rd party AVs except ESET. Stupid leftovers after uninstall that are not removed and keep running in background and uninstall can break components. For example KAV remover can break system restore.
