Neither of the ones you mentioned ;D
You need ashQuick.exe

Assuming that you installed avast! in the default folder, this is the path needed to scan downloads, C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashQuick.exe
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.3.2459 (build 21.3.6164.561) UI 1.0.609/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Neron, by FlashGet fault, it won't scan files with spaces into their path  :'(
I tried to workaround this with Igor but I was not successful...

So, if you download a file called:
File Name With_Spaces inside.exe
it won't be scanned  :P

It's not a solution, but a workaround.
If you set Avast to scan changed/modified files they still should be scanned by the on-access scanner.

I believe I really did fix the problem with the spaces... any example where it doesn't work?

It's strange... I really think I fixed the problem when I did similar fixes for usage in PKZIP.
I just checked and I don't have any problems with FlashGet 1.65 - files with spaces are scanned correctly.

Igor, definitively I'm doing something wrong... It's not working for me...

OK, I'll create a new test version and send it to you, to see what's going on there.

It was not necessary... sorry for the 'extra' work.
It's working now... What did I do? Nothing... It's strange... but let's live  8)

Hi all!Now i see that there are files that are scanned and that are not and that depends on flashget setup.These are the file types that are scanned.(the files are in the flashget tools options file meneger.
.ZIP;.EXE;.DO?;.XL?;.COM;.BIN;.GZ;.Z;.TAR;.ARJ;.LZH;.SIT;.HQX;.TGZ;.DLL;.OCX;.VBX;.MP3
MP3 was added from me.I want to ask if there are other types that i should add to be fully protected.I want all important file to be scanned.But only the important,not files that just can't be infected.
Thanks!

.VBS,.VBE,.JS,.JSE,.HTA,.WSF,.WSH,.SHS,.SHB,.HTM,.CHM,.BAS,.BAT,.CMD,.CHM,.RAR,.MST

Maybe a bit over the top, but its hard to tell without knowing which kinda files you normally download.
