Broken firewall rules after update to 6.0.1289
« on: September 08, 2011, 02:27:47 PM »
I have rules in firewall (Comodo) for many programs, such as MS Word, Excel, Visual Studio, Adobe Photoshop Express etc. After updating Avast to 6.0.1289 these programs access internet through AvastSvc.exe and bypass all firewall rules. Is is possible to use Avast but not use AvastSvc.exe as proxy for other programs?

Yes..! :)
Check this: "Scan traffic from well know browser processes only" in the Web Shield settings.
