Avast Network Shield
« on: March 14, 2011, 04:26:28 PM »
When i try to run renegade after install renguard cause with some servers it's required to prevent cheating avast network shield keeps blocking connection to renguard servers and i can't find anyway in the avast interface to ignore it so i'm forced to disable this protection. Can someone help we out here maybe there is a way to ignore this? the link it blocks is  no other AV product flags this even with Heuristics set to high

Firefox and Google Safebrowsing show the site as a Malware site.  Since Firefox uses Google, then they can be counted as one.

Now G-Data show site as Malware, which is likely the reason that aVast Network Shield blocked it for you.  Please change the link in your post so that it isn't a live link.  Live links to malware sites should never be posted.
