File Reputation Warning
« on: July 28, 2017, 06:46:38 PM »
I have a user with a Dell laptop that receives this popup (Attached) randomly.  Sometimes when opening Outlook or Word and other times it just pops up on him.

I'm baffled by the "Origin" relating to the Dell drivers/software section and the "Downloaded by" being Microsoft Word. 

Can anyone advise as to what is going on here?!??!

thanks, Paul.

That shitty thing is going on the nerves of some customers of mine, too.

So, how can I disable this unwanted option in Avast Small Office Administration?

I checked there, but could not find anything ... and if users deactivate it in their clients ("Avast - Settings - Community" and "Avast - Settings - Cloud services"), it just gets ignored/reinstated and the messages will appear nonetheless.

I think settings must be done in admin console

Thank you, but:

I guess, with Admin Console you mean the Small Office Administration tool and there I checked for this community service.

HI,

In the group settings select cloud services on the left and there's an option to disable the reputation services.
