SAS Real Time seeing Avast as critical threat in False Positives Posted December 21, 2012 For me, I did what SouthernKittyComputing suggested the first time I got the FP that helped in not seeing the message pop up in a scan or the real time window. Unchecked the FP's and turned off the real time protection. Avast would still not update so then I went to the SAS Bug in the tray (bottom right corner of the screen), Right Clicked on the bug and selected "View Blocked Spyware Applications..." and selected the Avast app that was being blocked and highlighted it and selected "Allow /Trust Item" That let avast run and update. Later when the update came out I applied it and turned on the real time protection again. Everything is fine now.
