Hi,
I've had a recurring issue since 28/4 which I have just realized is down to Avast & I'd like to see if I can somehow amend settings within to stop it occurring if I can.

The issue is in my design software application (SAi Flexi 12) when I try to export a design in certain file types (pdf, jpeg etc) I get a box opens within Flexi saying "Cannot save file" when I click ok Avast opens saying "We've just protected your file" with options to block or allow the app to which I always select allow, but it keeps doing it.

The only solution seems to be doing a system restore back to 28/4 & all is good again then, but something keeps updating every few days & I'm back to square one again having to do the sys restore again.  I previously thought it was a Windows update causing the issue but as mentioned I believe now that Avast is the problem but have no idea what settings to amend in order to stop it.

Can someone please advise?

Thanks in advance
Myles

Thanks Pondus, Think I have it sorted now.  It seems that when It was giving the option to allow the app which I was doing & it was showing the app in the allowed list, it actually wasn't working, so I needed to delete the app from the list & manually add it which seems to have done the job now, fingers crossed :)
