How do I close Avast?
« on: May 15, 2024, 05:15:50 PM »
Avast is preventing me download a file.  How do I close it so that I may continue.  I can see no way.

Is there a block message from avast?

If you right click the tray icon, is there a option to pause shields?

If you are getting an Alert (you don't say Avast is stopping you), it should have options, one being Exclude.

That said you are the one at risk of your actions.
