Avast Free Antivirus and AutoHotKey
« on: March 28, 2018, 08:33:14 PM »
Hi everyone!

I'm trialling the free version of Avast before I full buy the full package. The first thing I noticed is that when AutoHotKey is running, Avast completely freezes and causes the computer to freeze. I cannot do anything, and have to hold down the laptop's power button to reset.

I have never experienced this with AVG or Kaspersky.

I have tried updating AutoHotKey to the latest version, but this didn't solve the issue.

Without AutoHotKey running, Avast behaves normally. However once I start AutoHotKey, I get no error messages but after opening the Avast window, it will no longer to respond to anything, and will not close to the system tray or minimise. As I say, it also freezes the computer so I cannot kill AutoHotKey with the Task Manager.

Anyone come across this issue before and/or can offer a suggestion?

Thank you so much!
