Open Avast, click Real Time shields>File System Shields>Expert Settings.

Now click Exclusions>Add>Browse. Then add the folder you want.

Does that work for you?

There is a file I want to exclude - it hasn't excluded it so far.

Hi SIW, for you, click on the Settings tab at the top right corner.

Now click Exclusions from the left side. Then click Add>Browse>Select the File>OK.

I did that already.

Avast still grabs it and sticks it in the Chest.

I managed to get it out of the chest ,. but now it isn't working properly.

Will get another copy and try again later.

Avast
Running latest ver on Win 7x64 Ultimate. I don't see anyone complaining about the speed of Avast I might have a bad load or something else. The scan speed is fine. But when I click to bring it up it takes forever and sometimes it stops responding when I am changing windows. Anyone else see this...
