I just upgraded AVG free to version 18.104.22.168. I do programming almost daily and sometimes I recompile the code tens or hundreds of times per day. With the latest version of AVG, every time I make minor changes in the code and recompile the program, the AVG starts scanning the executable and it informs me it will take up to 15 seconds to finish it. This is not acceptable for me, as it would slow down the development to a crawl. All my programs are located in a particular folder (C:\MyCode). Is there a way to tell AVG not to be concerned with any of the code from that folder (unless I decide to scan the entire folder)? What other options do I have, apart for disabling the antivirus?

My AVG Internet Security keeps blocking all access to the internet. I tried disabling the firewall but it kept blocking access. I uninstall and then reinstall and it resolves the problem for a period of time only for it to occur again. This has been occurring for at least two weeks.
I checked to ensure it wasn't my browser (Firefox) by using other browsers, I checked to ensure it wasn't my network adapter but the only solve to allow internet access was to uninstall AVG.
What can I check to determine why it is blocking all access?
We do understand your concern, we apologize. Let us know the exact name of AVG you have installed, is that paid version or free version of AVG?
We would request you to follow the below steps to reinstall your AVG network filter to get issue fixed. -Disable AVG Self Protection (http://avgclick.me/TempDisableAVG). - Go to Control Panel -> Network Connections -> right click on the network area which is active -> "Properties" - If there is "AVG Network filter driver" uninstall it and restart the computer twice - AVG Firewall initializes auto-repair function so "AVG Network filter driver" should be automatically installed (therefore two restarts are needed) - If there isn't "AVG Network filter driver" click "Install " -> "Service" -> "Have Disk" -> "Browse" and look for c:\Program Files\AVG\AVGAV\Drivers\avgfwfd.inf

When I run AVG 1-Click Maintenance (Wndows 7, Laptop HP Facebook4730s) the first 5 ops are completed but it gets half way through "Clean Up Browser" and stalls; says it's analysing, green line doesnt move. Have tried reinstalling and starting again with same result. Solution please ?
I repeat my previous response to your false assumption; I take offense at the content and tone (!) your complaint as I did not intentionally post multiple threads with the intention of obtaining a faster reply, or for any other reason. I can only assume that the double post is due to a glitch on your website and if you look I guess you will see they were both posted at the same time.
And when it comes to multiple postings..... this is the second message I have received regarding the same post, please refrain from sending multiple annoying messages to customers !
My AVG 2015 has started giving issues as of 8/23/15 as whenever I ran the Update now button it would come back stating: Update failed, Update has detected running installation. Complete that installation before starting update. From what I have noticed that the windows installer in my current OS (Windows 10 Pro) is currently greyed out and is currently set to manual. This may be an issue in the registry itself but I have yet to figure that part out. Any help on this manner would be appreciated as it is affecting installing/uninstalling other programs as well.
After the last Ultimate upgrade to 18.3.3051, the program fails to enable "hacker attacks" and "payments" Sometimes , upon computer start up , it shows them working, other times they are dis-abled. I initially contacted AVG tech support and they wanted to charge me to "fix the problem". I have been using a back up I made , when the program was working, to restore it each time the 2 items are non-functional.
I have been purchasing AVG for quite a number of years and have always liked the software. Now I am considering switching to another company's product.
