If I'm reading this right, you're having trouble with Avast picking up your games incorrectly as malicious and sandboxing them, a case of false positives. In this case, since you really do seem to know more about what you're doing on your computer than the folks at Avast, switching the sandbox to Ask will solve the problem as you can specifically tell Avast to allow your games to run normally and Avast will never attempt to sandbox that game again as it will remember your choices.
