Please don`t ignore the topic of this thread...

I am looking for a PERMANENT way to handle the problem that this DB File grows to such a big size.
I already know, that I can delete this File or reinstall Avast, but this fixes not the problem, that this file is growing again to such a huge size.

Cause I already discovered that the major reason for this size is, that avast permanent scanns all UPNP Connections between my PC and my Router, we need a way to tell Avast to NOT Scan UPNP Communication, or yust scan it, but not store it in this Database.
