  • Foxit unable to delete temp file ("~~")

    Hello! So I've had this bug for about a year but never got around to fixing it, couldn't find anything on the web...

    Recently two forum posts have shown up here about the exact same issue, and from what I can gather, this bug stems from Avast doing something stupid and not letting Foxit auto-delete the temporary file that starts with "~~": &

    So I got around to adding the Foxit Software folder to the Avast exceptions, because that method fixed another Avast bug (with Android Studio).

    However, the same thing still happens. I can't exactly turn off my antivirus every time I open up a PDF, especially considering how annoying Windows 10 gets, so any ideas or workarounds are much appreciated 😔👏🏻

    (No, I don't use OneDrive or Dropbox or anything like that, I have no network drive; and the temp file shows up in the same folder as the original, regardless of where it is.)

    - FOXIT Reader Version:
    - The issue occurs in every PDF file, gotten from the web or made in my PC or pendrive
    - My OS: Windows 10 Pro, but also happens in my laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate
    - It happens whether I open the file with a click or via the Foxit "Open" menu
