Only in Professional version.
In Home version you have to deal with the first virus warning. It's a limitation of the free version of avast.

Btw, this question same has been asked several times in the past few days with two of the threads actually on this same first page:

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=36913.0

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=36909.0

You might want to check out either one for a little more details regarding the answer to your question (each answered by Tech also if I'm not mistaken who I would imagine is probably getting tired of answering the same question over and over ;)).

Be warned though, AVAST can find false positives i.e. thinks a file is a virus when it is not so I would personally not ask AVAST to auto delete.

Just some advise from someone who did and regretted it.

Indeed, send to Chest is better and safer, allowing further investigation and restoration.
