Okey I will give it a try. How can I prevent ALL avast operations pertaining to my Outlook Express email. My firewall is great for my email and that is what I want to use. Is this possible to do with avast? Also the instructions for avast are as clear as thick mud.

A firewall does not protect email (attachments), that is what av software is for.
But if you want to take the risk of getting infected through email, than it is your choice.
Disable the Internet mail provider and Avast will not scan your mail anymore.
Since you are using OE, you can also disable the Outllook/Exchange provider.

If the instructions for avast were written clearly and I could have found out how to disable the mail provider I would have done so without making a post requesting assistance. This reply is of absolutely no value nor of any help to me. XMAS where are you?

Do you want to use avast! Internet Mail provider with other email programs or not?

 I use only Outlook Express, If there is an attachment included I delete without opening it and I block the sender. E mail is a big pain IMO. I am beginning to think I will get rid of this computer and spend more time fishing and playing golf. I am 74 years old and unwilling to change in many areas. Excuse my ranting on.

Clcik the blue ball (with the A in it)
This will open the on-access control panel.
There you can disable/enable providers.

CTE, remember, we don't think disabling the avast! email protection is a good idea.
In fact, it's a very bad one. You'll be unprotected to a very large number of infections.
Why don't you let us help you to configure avast! and OE to work smoothly in your computer?  ;)

Avast mail protection will not open my Google alert messages properly-other then that everything is working fine. How can this be corrected. Please provide simple clear instructions as I know almost nothing about computers.

What exactly do you want?
GMail does not work in your system or just the Notifier?

No this is not Gmail-Isn't Gmail another form of email? Google Alerts are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your choice of query or topic. monitoring a developing news story i.e
keeping current on a competitor or industry
getting the latest on a celebrity or event
keeping tabs on your favorite sports teams.
 This notification is sent to you via your email account and it has a subject introduction header page which must be opened to read the complete story. The message does not include attachments. http://www.googlealert.com/features.php
