Allow action not shown in avast popup

I would be nice if avast put an option when an item is detected that you could allow the item.

I rather doubt that is going to happen, avast software have for some considerable time chosen not to do this as a single click option is just too dangerous. It could lead to accidental infection if the user gets it wrong or simply clicks the button to allow it.

That is why it is manually adding an exclusion.

 David while I respect your opinion I too would like to see this option.

It isn't my opinion that you have to be concerned about, I'm just an avast user like yourself. But this has been like this in the avast support forums for almost 10 years that I have been using avast and the forums.
