I have a game on Origin that has multiplayer features. The only problem is that to access those multiplayer features (add friends, report people, have access to in-game purchases etc.) i have to disable my avast shield. I don't plan on doing that and i have put the folder into my exceptions but i just only realised that it doesn't scan those files when going through a virus scan. Anyone know how to permanently disable those shields for only that game?

You didn't say which version of Avast you are using but, if it's a paid version that includes the Avast Firewall,
Set it to Private and see if that solves your problem.
