    When I installed the latest version of Outpost, I was asked to Add it to Avast! Exclusions System Shield, Is this The File system Shield exclusions or The Full System scan Scan Exclusions? and which ever it is do I just click on to Add the Agnitum program folder or something else? o_O

    You go to the Avast! settings and add the folders of Agnitum as exclusion. No need to add it to any shields.

    The settings for Avast! is at the top right hand corner.

    Settings > Exclusions > Add

    Best regards,

    KOR!

    Quite recently, I had a conversation with a user at avast! forum, who has been a long user by the way, and according to him and I did verify it when I was testing avast!, the general settings do not apply to all shields. For those shields that allow you to change settings individually, you may and should add the exclusions there as well, namely the File System Shield.

    yes, it's the file system shield you are asked to add the exclusion. but I didn't set any exclusions in avast (or in outpost pro) and never had any problems.
    if you add the exclusion of outpost folder in avast setting (upper right corner) this is only for the on-demand scan (it also say this).

    Agree with moonblood there. Have discovered that also recently.
