You can configure Avast
to exclude a particular file, folder, or partition, during the scan process:
E.g (test folder named as Kioskea)
- Open Avast (Double Click on the Avast icon in the system tray )
- Select the Real-Time Shields tab
- In the right pane click on the "Expert Settings" button
In the dialog that opens up select the "Exclusions" tab.
In the right pane, (on an empty line) click on the Browse button and select the folder of your choice.
There are several other options that can be activated: that is, in what circumstances the exclusions shall be applied (Read,Write, Excecute...etc)
Finally click on the "Add"" button . (Note that a new line shall then be available for you to add another exclusion)
