My suggestion to avast!

I am hoping in the next version the sandbox will improve.... I wish avast would just deny all the *unknown instead of using heuristics... I don't know any one else's feelings against this review but this was pretty freaking horrendous. Not one alert from sandbox not one.....

No... This wouldn't happen. This is full deny policy and avast won't follow it.

Well, what's been tested? The tester is a Comodoish thinker. Read more in that link about Comodo & avast policies.

Listen the test and you'll listen how many times it compares avast with Comodo...

The heuristics that Avast! is using for the AutoSandbox is just on a starting line now. The data that is automatically send back to Avast ! from the community is used to improve the heuristics. And those new heuristics will be provided with the VPS updates. So it is improving every day :)

Did you READ my previous post ???

The developers told us it needs 30 - 60 days to become fully effective.

The sandbox (on demand) was not bypassed yet.
We're talking the new AutoSandboxing feature (on access).
If you want to sandbox any unknown files and a lot of clean files as well, use Comodo Internet Security.

Comodo Internet Security is cheaply made and so is the CEO.

Well, we are going off-topic now, but I currently think I don't like Melih ( Comodo's CEO ) either. That said, in my opinion Comodo still provides a good free firewall :)

It looks like he is running IE8 or an earlier version.

1. Why would anyone test anything today using IE8?  Better yet why is anyone still using IE8 which is total garbage?

2. Why would you open an downloads on download?  This is stupid.

3.  Also why is he downloading stuff from those garbage websites?

I suggest the tester change to Firefox or IE9 RC and learn that when you download a file you save it to a some place safe so that you can see what is downloaded before you run it.

This has to be one of the worst tests evah
