    Open Avast Free Antivirus, then click "Antivirus" followed by "Settings." You can paste the file paths you copied in the “File path” field where you see “(enter file path).” Click “Add” and the program will be excluded from all of Avast's protection shields, including virus scanning.

    To unblock the program, open Avast and click on “Settings”. Paste the file path in the File path field. Click Add for the antivirus to exclude the program from the protection shields. Turn the Avast shields on after adding the file exclusion.
