Avast 8 Free Autosandbox

Avast 8 Free Autosandbox question.  When something is autosandboxed and Avast Free 8 does not find it to be malware and I click continue execution, is it still sandboxed or is it run normally?

The file is allowed to run outside sandbox when you click continue execution and this is the currect flaw in the sandbox design as there are too many occasions where real malware is not found as malicious in the sandbox and when the user clicks continue execution and system is infected I guess avast team is currently thinking on making this thing more automated in near future,but we will see  :)

this may behaviour may change when dyna engine comes into play  ;D
