The main problem with putting it on block, many legitimate processes, software, etc. have suspicious behavior, just because the behavior is suspicious doesn't mean that it is bad.
There is a reason why Avast choose to set it to Auto-decide by default.
Avast developers are not stupid, they know auto-decide is the best option for most situations. Sooner or later having it set to block will corrupt some legitimate processes, software, installers, drivers, etc. It might be awhile before you notice but it will happen.
