For some time I have been running TFC as part of a clean up routine, but have missed out for some months now (work issues).


I recently tried to run it then Avast blocked it. I noticed that my TFC.exe file was then missing so I went to G2G to reload a copy. These are the following steps I encounter each time.


1) When I try to download TFC.exe Avast blocks it with the following message:

I turn off the 'Web Shield' function in Avast, then download TFC.exe successfully.


2) When I try to run TFC.exe (as administrator) it is blocked by Avast again, with the following messages

TFC Run Error Message.jpg


....then followed by the next message


TFC Avast Run Blocked Message.JPG


Then I notice that the TFC.exe file has been removed by Avast, apparently to 'chest'...certainly I can not see it in the Recycle Bin folder.


I have been using TFC for some time & have not had this problem.


Is this something others have been seeing?  Any advice or tips for me please?


Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
