To protect your programs from blocking, try to digitally sign your code, I'd recommend you use Thawte, it has well-recognized certificates which are not really too expensive (starting from 100 € / year).


It works almost for all the situations, but sometimes there could be some cases when you just can't sign a code. Try to contact with Avast, if everything's OK they will add you to a whitelist within a few hours.


Also, I'd recommend you to use a little trick: creat a separate version of your program with a function that is supposed to be 'dangerous'. It will avoid you from re-submitting for the whitelist after the future changes to your program.

  1. Open the Avast interface
  2. Settings
  3. General
  4. Find the tab Exclusions
  5. add specific programs to the File paths
  6. Added applications and/or paths will now be excluded from any Avast scanning
