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.
