I don't know, but the same popup appears whatever the scanner encounters.

@leomin: i found this option, but what it do if i make "yes"? "yes, delete it", "yes, move it" or "yes, ignore it"?

@GrizeBar: i dont have this option, i got the same as "onlysomeone" - wich version do u use?

@all: Any1 else knows a solution how to set rules?

thx

yes--avast! will not touch the file, but then the file will not run and no progress has the access to it until a system restart
no --avast! will delete the file and make it a copy in the quarantine

I believe in the case of copying a number of files, after one of them is blocked by avast! Guard automatically with a "Yes" or a "No", Windows will continue it's copying. But I'm not sure, maybe you can make a test ;D

so if i do "Yes" the file will be ignored by avast, but will it be copied or blocked?
if i do "No" the file will be deleted and moved, but will it be copied? ;)

As far as I know, there is an option in the Home Edition to make the Guard react automatically when it finds a threat, but there is no such options for the scanner.

Would it be possible to translate that screen or post a similar screen from the English version?

so if i check this option, the file will not be "touched" but also not "run" ....

... what it means? it will not be deleted, but also not copied?

in my case, i copy a punch of files:

1) it will skip the infected file and continue copy the other files?
2) it will skip the infected file and stop?
3) copy this and other files?

... and what does "No"?

I'll leave this to the Techs, as I'm in over my head. Apparently your version is different than mine.

sorry i'm back late and thanks for the english screen :)
"yes" means ignore and "no" means quarantine
but when avast! ignores a threat it doesn't mean that avast! totally ignores it, the infected file will be offline to all the progresses running in the system
so i assume(only an assumption) that the infected file will not be copied even you check on "Yes", but the Vorteil is that this single file will be skipped and the copying of the other files can be continued instead of waiting there for you to make a choice until next morning~~

i tested it now several times, and i always get this error while copying files...
now i will test it without avast running - not my favorite way, but if there is no solution with avast -.-
