Autohotkey
« on: September 28, 2015, 08:24:55 PM »
I am using the subscription version of  Avast Internet Security. About 2 days ago, it deleted a harmless keyscript exe wich i´ve used for some time and resists every attemp to use  exclusion  rules. Customer support so far hasn´t even acknowledged my requests. I hope this gets solved soon.

Where are you trying to set this exclusion and what are you entering there ?

If it is the avastUI > Settings > General - scroll down to Exclusions and enter the full URL - you may find that it won't let you get down to file level - so just enter the path to the folder and OK that. You can go back in and modify the exclusion and replace the * at the end with the file name.

Ok, i tried that now as well, didn´t work thou. I can use the autohotkey and compiler exe, but i can´t compile a script to an exe. I even have that exe exluded in the data file protection, but in order to put it in general exlusion, i would first have to compile it, wich i cant.  Catch 22 ::)

Another problem, for wich i unsuccesfully tried to contact support: Smart scan hangs at 39 prozent(browser cleanup).

I don't believe you have to compile it to an exe to be able to set an exclusion.

But are we really talking about this given that you were getting a detection on keyscript exe ?

The virus detection alert comes when i compile a harmless script with autohotkey to an exe. It needs to be compiled in order not to run it constantly, but to turn in on/off with a keystroke.
Thats the script (lalt.ahk):
Thread, interrupt, 0
;
LAlt::
Thread, Priority, 2147483647
GetKeyState, State, RButton
if state=U
Click Down Right
else
Click Up Right
Return
;

Thats the site where i get the program from:

If it isn't the script file (prior to its compilation) rather than scanning the script file. I don't believe avast has a way to compensate for that.

But I'm still not clear on what it is alerting on and which shield it alerting - a screenshot of the alert window would help.
