These sites are mostly secure and trusted and mostly do not require scanning.
So i want that avast should stop scanning https connections that have a valid trusted certificate.

You can exclude them in the settings, if needed.
I may add that I've never had any slowdowns with any https connection(s).

How can i exclude all https connections while making all http connections scanned before entering my system?

Win 7 firewall is not that bad.

I know that. ;)
Btw, you didn't answer the questions...

what i mean is the problem with the https connections that stop working or work very slowly when avast intercepts them for scanning. Example is with a few online brokerage websites whose tickers/quotes disappear/freeze/delay when avast intercepts them while making an https connection.

That isn't the problem as avast doesn't intercept/monitor https traffic.

These sites are mostly secure and trusted and mostly do not require scanning.
So i want that avast should stop scanning https connections that have a valid trusted certificate.

I suspect that there is more going on than just https traffic at these sites, typically they may well be using http ports and aren't using strict http protocol. If this is the case then the web shield would have a problem with the non-http protocol data, I have seen this in lots of sites like live streaming of stock info, etc.

Try this - In the avastUI, Settings, Troubleshooting, Redirect Settings, WEB, Ignored addresses: and enter the IP address of the ticker site.
