Hi, GraigB,
It is a typo error. I meant Avast as I always use Avast
I found, when i see the Allowable Programs by Windows Firewall, most of the important programs are there. But Avast is not there, and i have to include by choosing change the settings and then add the avast. But lesser important exes were found there. I think AV is one program that should find place in the Windows Firewall and so I made this request of finding the avast in the Windows Firewall. I know that Avast does not have free firewall.
The only time avast should have to be placed in the windows firewall is if you have activated the outbound protection, on standard installations outbound isn't turned on and avast doesn't require permissions from the windows firewall.
