How do I make an exception with a trainer detected by avast!?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I had Microsoft Security Essentials and when it detected a trainer, it would allow me to make it an exception to a Trojan.

But, with avast!, it detects the trainer, and when I report it as a false positive, there is no way to add it to the exceptions list, avast! is complicated unlike MSC and Malwarebytes.

Anybody have avast! or is there a better free anti-virus because I keep getting an installation error with MSC.

I'm not sure if you can make exceptions with avast but when downloading files that might flag up, I send them to a folder that I have specified avast to ignore.
This can be done under settings. You may also be able to use this tool to specify only that one file to ignore, but I'm not too sure about that as I've only ever tried folders.

Good luck
