avast 4.7 home blocks wanted progams
« on: July 03, 2007, 03:52:06 AM »
I have PC Tattle tale, a monitoring software, installed on my daughter's PC.
Avast has been blocking, or disabling this program to where I can't even
access it.

Any suggestions ?

thanks.

a monitoring software
Do you mean a keylogger?


You need to use the Exclusion lists:

For the Standard Shield provider (on-access scanning):
Left click the 'a' blue icon, click on the provider icon at left and then Customize.
Go to Advanced tab and click on Add button...

For the other providers (on-demand scanning such as the screen-saver or the Simple User Interface):
Right click the 'a' blue icon, click Program Settings.
Go to Exclusions tab and click on Add button...

You can use wildcards like * and ?.
But be careful, you should 'exclude' that many files that let your system in danger.
The best things in life are free.

If a keylogger as Tech suggests then this is a retrospective tool and you only find out after the fact, there are some proactive Parental Control Software options, which may be better suited to what you want.

- Naomi Parental Control software (freeware) http://www.radiance.m6.net/
- Or K9 Web Protection, more flexible, less radical (closing the browser). Worth a try www.k9webprotection.com.
