Avast not saving exclusions
How to exclude file/folder in avast free antivirus [tutorial
Since you’ve disabled web shield, the eicar file will be written to the hard drive. By default, File System Shield searches for just a few file forms. Temporarily allow test all files in the file system shileld writing options, but remember to disable it afterwards. If you keep it activated, you’ll lose performance.
Yes, it’s turned on. When I exclude read and execute from scanning, I still allow scan all files, pups, and whole files, as well as high sensitivity. It allows me to better balance success and risk. eicar is also undetected by on-write scanning (and possibly other viruses). You should verify it for yourself. I’ve attached a screenshot of the scan all files option.
Version 17.1 of the File System Shield has obscured several exceptions that were apparent in previous versions. There’s.txt,.log, pagefile, and so on. This may be the explanation why it isn’t detecting. (Try saving.inf; it is never disabled in any version.) Enabling scanning of all files is also a poor idea, as your machine would be slowed for no reason. High heuristic also contributes to false positives, as established malware is detected even when the heuristic is disabled. The default settings are the most balanced and are highly recommended.

So, following your advice, I’ve added the path to the “File System Shield” exclusions list as well (it was previously only in the general settings exclusions list). I put it to the test and it succeeded. Thank you for answering and for having the solution. Thank you so much…!! Any other questions/suggestions will be answered by the developers. asynchronous

But, if this was the solution, I have to wonder why there are two “exclusions” lists.
Customizability. Each shield could be customized in this way. A different profile could be used for each scan… Use the general exclusion list if you want to exclude all of them.

Currently, the last sentence you wrote is incorrect. As previously mentioned, I added the exclusion path first to the general settings, which are independent of any particular shield or scan form. This environment should have been enough, according to your comment, but it wasn’t. From a “solution” standpoint, the user Asyn was right in suggesting that I should also provide the route to the particular shield that was causing the unwanted behaviour. As you can see, the “general” setting was not “imposed” on the specific shield. If this was the original goal, then it isn’t working as intended for the developers. What shield should I use? There ought to be an issue. That is not how the exclusion list functions in principle. What specifically did you apply to the exclusion list? (post the text here).
How to add folders to the avast 2018 exceptions
Remember that the next time you use scan, Avast will automatically include both of these locations. If you choose to use the Avast software exceptions service again, pick them the same way you did before. Otherwise, you’ll have no choice but to make the changes permanent.
If you want to remove those locations from this method of scanning, go back to the file paths and pick the executable file for each mission. If you do not choose them, antivirus software will not search the application’s executable files.
Avast Business Antivirus, Avast Internet Security, or Avast Pro allow you to customize your endpoint defense. This is achieved by users to reduce search time by preventing such programs from scanning.
How to prevent avast from blocking a program
I’ve had many (what I presume are) false positives from Avast full machine virus scans in the last few months. Two of them came from random steam exe files from steam games I’d downloaded. One came from a core temp installer today. I tried adding an exclusion to Avast for my common folder in Steam/Steamapps/Common, which holds all of my steam games, by going to: Settings/Active Protection/File System Shield(click Customize)/Exclusions, and then clicking Add.
So, under the full search tab, I went to Settings>Exclusions and applied the same file path exclusion for my steam popular folder. I stayed up until the end of the scan. It seemed to still be scanning files in the common folder, which perplexed me, but the scan went much faster.
