This program has updated and now one program I use will not work, happened this morning, got it working by windows restore back to yesterday. Get message cannot connect to server. As Avast wants to update which it has the program will not work again. This is not a commercial program from big company but a specialist one. Any ideas or suggestions on another anti virus program please. Has any one else had trouble with Avast causing programs not to open. Thanks Bill

No problem here

It's prob a case of telling Avast that the specialist program is okay/ or excluding it via Avast | Settings | Global Exclusions, and browse to the program, then Avast will ignore it.

Might be a good idea to email Avast Support about that specialist program so they can issue a fix for the future.

Have now got the program working with system restore and all updates appear ok. I still have one program that will not work windows closes it after starting. Have downloaded the latest version but still no go.
