  1. Avast(with OA folder excluded)

    It's not strictly related to the topic but generally speaking I would suggest to be sure that both OA folder and subfolders are excluded in Avast! AV adding them to the exclusions list you can find in the File System Shield settings (real-time protection).

    Several users tend to simply add OA to the exclusions list you can find in the general settings/options. Actually those exclusions will only be applied to on-demand/scheduled personal scans and not to the Avast! AV real-time protection, as far as I know.

    :)


  2. Hi, in the past I had a similar problem - the same happened to another user as well.

    It was caused by Microsoft.Net Framework 4 as far as I know.

    Perhaps if you have Microsoft.Net Framework 4 on your machine along with Avast! and OA Free and your OS is Win XP Pro SP3, you would like to take a look at this thread in the old forum:

    (in particular post n.10)

    I hope this can help somehow


  3. EDIT Ignore this post. I've found the answers above on one of nick's posts.

    No problem. For your convenience I've just re-posted the basic rules for Firefox here, including also the port range related to Loopback in Win7 (as kindly highlighted by MMNC in his post):

    1. Allow / TCP / Out

    Ports: 80,443,1024-5000**,12080* --> Win XP

    Or

    Ports: 80,443,12080*,49152-65535*** --> Win7 / Vista

    2. Deny / TCP / Out

    Ports: 0-65535

    **1024-5000 (Loopback Interface for Win XP)

    ***49152-65535 (Loopback Interface for Win7/Vista)

    443 (https)

    80 (http)

    *12080 (Avast! Antivirus) - this port depends on the AV used. This only applies to AV software that filters web traffic acting like a proxy.

    You may need additional ports, for example: 21 (FTP)


  4. The problem is that the free version doesn't allow to tune up the rules.

    You can create or modify rules in the free version :)

    If you want, you could try the rules for Firefox I posted. However don't forget to change the Loopback Interface port range if your OS is Win7/Vista and set the correct port for your AV if needed.

    49152-65535 (Win 7/Vista - Loopback Interface)


  5. I created a couple of basic rules for Firefox to avoid this behaviour with "Intercept loopback interface" enabled:

    1. Allow / TCP / Out

    Ports: 80,443,1024-5000,12080*

    2. Deny /TCP / Out

    Ports: 0-65535

    1024-5000 (Loopback Interface)

    443 (https)

    80 (http)

    *12080 (Avast! Antivirus) - this port depends on the AV used. This only applies to AV software that filters web traffic acting like a proxy.

    You may need additional ports, for example: 21 (FTP)


  6. [*]The site matches an entry on OA's internal whitelist

    Is the whitelist you have mentioned above the same of this option: "Ignore OA web sites list"? or perhaps is it another one?

    I'm asking because disabling it and deleting all the trusted entries has no effect. Sites such as "download.windowsupdate.com" and "emsisoft-s.cleverbridge.com" keep being added in the list. Also with the Web Shield turned off...

    :huh:
