hey it blocks autorun.inf without paid version..only for advanced functions u need to buy it.i didnt know of panda and snake oils before ::)


u forgot the main objective of the post..Avast shows a legit software as malware...and tat must be corrected because they say a single avast virus definition can detect 1000s of viruses, so it may be possible tat a single false positive may cause much more problems

btw wats snake oil??? ;D :D

If you go to the chest and right-click on the quarantined sample, you can submit it to avast as false positive.

Snake oil: 1, 2  :P
