Avast Antivirus has worked well for me until recently.

I download programs from the GiveAwayOfTheDay.com site.  It is common for me to have to disable the four core shields to enable the program install.  But recently that has not worked.  I finally found that I had to enter the Avast Passive mode to enable the installs.  This require restart of Windows and is rather cumbersome to do.

I appreciate the difficulty of providing system protection, but is there a way to make program installs easier to do?

The download for me was not blocked by Avast but by Google.


For me this is enough to find something else.
Your computer, your choice.
