You could try setting Hardened Mode in Avast to "On" and setting
it to "Aggressive". When Avast alerts on starting it, select "Create
an Exclusion". From then on it should start okay.
Yep, this is counter-intuitive to what you might think of doing,
but it does work for me! Got the tip from the Avast forum for the
very same problem.
I have been happily
running JTAlert 2.4.20 for the past few days
with no problems. Apparently with the latest
Avast virus definition update, 2.4.20 now is
said to contain a virus. Avast moves JTAlert.exe
file to the Virus Chest and I no longer can run
the application. I sent the file to Avast as a
false positive, so perhaps they will update the
virus definitions soon. My temporary work-around
is to disable virus checking when I start
JTAlert and then turn it back on. I tried
setting JTAlert.exe as a global exclusion in
Avast, but it still kept moving the .exe file to
the Virus Chest.
I realize that it is
an Avast issue, but if anyone has any
suggestions for a better work-around, they would
be much appreciated.
