Online armor + Avast free

Recommended Posts

I've downloaded avast! free for about 3 weeks now and I'm thinking about installing Online Armor Firewall free, I need to stop relying on the Windows firewall. Are there any known conflicts between the two? Any exclusions that need to be set in place? Also, I've excluded mBAM in avast! and vice versa, but does OA need exclusions for mBAM and vice versa? Looking forward to your replies, thanks everyone!

To exclude OA in Avast:

· Settings > Exclusions > Add > search for Online Armor and click on the box to the left of it and add it, then click OK.

· Real Time Shields > Expert Settings > Trusted Processes > Add > search for Online Armor and click on the box to the left of it and add it, then click OK.

· Behavior Shield > Expert Settings > Trusted Processes > Add > search for Online Armor and click on the box to the left of it and add it, then click OK. Also change action to take in Behavior Shield to “Ask.”

To exclude Avast in OA:

· Open the OA GUI > Options > Exclusions > Add > click on the pop-up window and find C:\Program Files\Avast Software\.

· When you reboot OA (to go into Learning Mode), make sure ALL Avast shields are left on.

· Reboot your machine again; OA requires two boots. After this second reboot, you may get a pop-up asking you if you trust Avast. Answer the pop-up as "Trust Always" and "Remember My Decision" and you should not get any more pop-ups.

· Open the OA GUI > Programs > untick "Hide Trusted" so that you can see everything > look to make sure everything from Avast is not "blocked" (red) or "ask" (yellow). If it is, right-click the item and change it to "Trust." Reboot.

· Open the OA GUI > Options > Backup/Restore > Save your settings once you have everything the way you want it.

Cheers,

Steve

Would this work if one used Online Armor Premium and avast! Pro Anti-virus? My cousin wanted to know about a good anti-virus and firewall and their exclusions. Thanks!
