Hex 2.505 install issue

So I launched Hex today, like a million times before, and avast popped up saying a malicious file was blocked. I didn't actually read what file it was though. Upon re-opening the program, my cube primitive is missing from the tool bar.
I decided to re-install hex from my back-up cd, and Avast keeps blocking the file

c:\program files(x86)\DAZ\Hexagon|plugins\A3DBendTool.atx
Then the installer quits without installing at all.
Anyone have any Ideas??

Thanks!

    You'll need to disconnect from the internet and disable Avast while installing Hex, then create an exception in Avast to allow the file -- I don't currently have Avast on any of my machines, but there's probably a way to report a false positive when you create the exception.

    Thanks! I ended up doing just that. I had to add an exception to every Daz folder for it to work succesfully. Must have been in the new Avast update I guess!
    Thanks again for your help!

    Avast normally gives you an option to proceed, if you wait a few seconds after the alert comes up.
