Avast problem still exists - my problem based on our  posts is  solved.

I have installed the latest version of Auslogics by turning Avast OFF for 10 minutes while I downloaded and installed it.

I thank all of you for some very interesting comments and information which helped me a lot.

As your file system is NTFS, you don't need a defrag tool.
If you still want to defrag the drive, the one build into Windows will do fine.

Auslogics is blocked on download, but I scanned the installation icon on my desktop with Avast and no issues were found.

I would have to say your issue could be related to a malicious redirect:  hxxp://static.auslogics.com/en/disk-defrag/disk... as evidenced by both of your pop up blocks. 

The site I went to:  https://www.auslogics.com/en/; https://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/; https://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/after-download/

You'll notice none of them have hxxp://static.auslogics.com, which is a different site entirely: 
http://urlquery.net/report.php?id=1494913062823 or
http://urlquery.net/report.php?id=1494913298654
https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/static.auslogics.com
http://zulu.zscaler.com/submission/show/7352452cefee880258265f7e239ac686-1494915390

I'd wonder how I got to the ...static site and go from there.  Not trustworthy.

Where you actually land can make all the difference.

What is an installation icon?  Curious.

Hello,
I checked the file and the detection was fixed, so it should not be detected now.

The icon that appears on my desktop to install the program after download.

Milos,  whatever you have done it now works fine. I have just downloaded Auslogics Disk Defrag free in the same way as previous and it went  perfect - no Avast block this time.

Thanks a million Milos for fixing the problem. Before you stepped in, things were getting into rather a mess.
