Avast flagging everything AutoHotkey and it's absolute nightmare
« on: December 20, 2022, 07:45:53 PM »
Can someone look into this and fix it. It's so bad I'm going to throw Avast off my system. First it blocked Autohotkey 2.0 installer, now it's flagging every single compiled EXE script. I've added exclusion and it keeps gobbling them up. Last one was IDP. Generic detection. It blocked it on 3 different levels.

This is absurd to a point Avast is flying off my system. And no, none was flagged as PUP, it was some dropper "malware" and EvoGen. FIX IT!

Have you tried disabling Anti-Rootkit Shield + Anti-Exploit Shield?

I've had similar frustrations with mining software getting quarantined even though exeptions were set.

Nah, rootkit stuff has nothing to do with it.
