Configure Avast to scan 7-zip archives during extraction



Malicious software are often hidden in compressed files, to avoid detection by your antivirus software.
  • You can configure Avast to perform a scan of your compressed files, during the extraction process (a period during which the malware can infect your system):
  • Here's an example (for 7-zip files ,but note that this rule also applies to different type of containers ... event the ISO files)
  • Open Avast > Real-Time Shields > in the right pane, click on the "Expert Settings'' button
  • In the new window, move to the "Packers" section and check the type of "archive files'' to be monitored.
  • Validate with the OK button.
