It doesn't delete any files, it never has done, it quarantines them.
That contradicts what Supamax said: "Problem is: as soon as I download it, Avast keeps deleting it." You cannot both be correct.

just stayed silent all the time
I never suggested it should do that, I said it shouldn't delete files without asking. I suggest rereading my post more carefully.

Amiga virus checkers were not all 20 years ago and indeed most Amiga virii do tunnel into kernel functions, eg. via interception of DoIO() calls. None of which is really relevant as to why a program should delete a user's files without asking, that principle is timeless.
