Technical, are you saying that you managed to run an infected file on your machine, even with avast Standard Shield enabled?? That would be a *bug*, of course... :)
Yes. I can rename the file for instance, I can see its properties... I'll try to post screenshots.
Using tetris.exe (a demo infected file) I can rename it as tetris2.exe for instance. I can't see the access denied so.
I know the new file is being detected (as infected) but the access to the first is not denied as far I can see.
I mean, the file is not blocked at all.

Vlk, I can't run the file. The second is being detected as infected.
But I'm not seing the file has access denied as the same as Windows concept for access denied, for instance, trying to open or see the contents of C:\System Volume Information folder.

This is how Standard Shield always behaved. I mean, the access to the file is not permitted (meaning that you can't read or run it, for example) - but you can see it in the folder listing (avast! is not a rootkit to hide the files, is it ;)), and you can rename (and possibly delete) it. Nothing has changed in this aspect...
