Does making an application "Run as Administrator" make the app password protected as far as an avast scan.

Short answer No, it just gives the application higher rights/permissions.

@ Para-Noid,

I have to give you credit, you put "resolved" in front of your title when your thread was done, but it needs to be done on the first open post in this topic so this thread can be closed.  We all learn.  ;)
