Avast 4.8 is effectively unsupported, no idea why you would be still using this antique.  I rather doubt there are many in the forum that have used it in the dim and distant past.  There are a few exceptions, mine being one.  If it was sent to the virus chest there is/was an option to send it to Avast for analysis from within the Virus Chest.

It could simply be a conflict between what is another security based product.
Could it also be that this Anti-Ransomware Tool is also very old.

Posting multiple topics on the same thing won't get it answered any quicker, just having duplicates removed.

I also ran 4.8 in the distant past and have to say this version would not be an effective anti-virus solution for obvious reasons developmentally; not to mention the evolution of today's malware (viruses,) ???

I'm all for using the stable technologies that proved themselves (up to a reasonable limit),
but dear god!  :o

A modern Windows with Avast 4.8 .... I think the last time I used that Avast version it was on Windows XP, 15 years ago.

And even on my Windows 7, just a year ago I had stop using a good and stable Avast v10 (2015) and switch to the more recent one, simply because the modern graphics card drivers were in conflict with the outdated Avast.

Virus definition updates for v4.x haven't been released for a long time (yours is from 2017... i.e. the product is basically useless, you can uninstall it and it won't change much) - so even if we wanted to do anything about it (which we probably wouldn't), there's no way to do that.
