It's probably a false positive from the recent update: check this thread, please.
If possible, send one of the files to virus(at)avast.com so that it can be fixed soon. Thanks!

Yes, in the program settings, you can set "exclusions" - files/folders that will not be scanned. In the Pro version, you can set the exclusions for each task separatelly.

As for the winrar FP - I hope it will be fixed very soon, so there shouldn't be any need to put it into exlusions.
