Avast Anti Virus
« on: September 28, 2014, 10:40:24 AM »

We have done extensive testing & has found that Avast is returning "False Positives" re Win32 Evo Gen "virus" or Malware on some of 4POS applications. Specifically 4POSBackup.exe

This can also cause your 4POS not to be installed or you not able to do upgrades!

We have decided NOT to use Avast any more & rather move to Kaspersky!

We suggest you do the same. All web info we can get points to the fact that this is a common problem in Avast.

Rather spend the money on a licenced version & get the peace of mind!

I have experienced similar problems with Avast on WIN10 , however after uninstalling Avast I can run all 4POS.executables except 4POS MASTER.
Anyone have a similar problem.
I cannot load the different databases. Can someone help.
Thank You
