Popup: Blocked by Avast self-defense: gmer.sys (PID 4).

How do I exclude gmer?

Hi I am also having the same issue.

I have disabled all the anti-virus components but still get the warning.

Why are you running gmer ?    Are you infected?

Gmer is part of Avast scan engine, and Avast run a rootkit scan 8 min after evry computer start

Hi I have found that GMER has found a malware (service registry key) which Avast did not

Gmer is a tool to be used by malware experts, most likely you are not reading the log correct
