IE 9 ( ieframe.dll ) leads to BS pop-up
« on: March 25, 2011, 05:25:38 PM »
Avast 6.0.1044 BS always popped up when I start the IE 9.
The "suspicious" file is: "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ieframe.dll"  ???

I had to put it on the trusted apps list in BS settings in order to get rid of the pop-up.

So there is no real problem, however I think that this file should not have provoked a pop-up in the first place... Am I the only one with this behaviour? Haven't found any posts mentioning this particular file.  8) (I know there have been probs before with IE 9 Beta and RC with Avast but they were, AFAIK, something different)

Thx

What BS option you have selected? Auto-decide, ask, block or allow?

I have not seen this BS popup on the rig in my sig yet. I'm running IE 9 RTM and AIS 6.0.1044 110225.0 defs. What does the ieframe.dll properties look like?
See my screen shot below.

Identical, except German instead of English.

I have BS set to ask also and do not see the popup. It must be a language thing? Looks like a fix is needed.

Try to change option to "auto-decide"

Why should I?

My point is: the file should not be rated "suspicious" in the first place.

And what happens if I set to Auto?

It will automatically decide whether file is dangerous or not. When yes, It will be blocked.
BTW I tried to set it to Ask and no pop-up...

That is not logical at all...
Does that mean, when I set to "Ask", that Avast BS does no evaluation of it's own? BS is based on evaluation, or isn't it?

If BS can Auto-Decide (and it MUST, it is a behaviour shield...), then this should be done always. If this auto-decision leads to "suspicious", then it should ask/block/allow according to what I have selected.

Seems I don't really understand how that BS thing works and why there is an "Auto Decide" setting.


Okay, when set to "Auto", pop-up is not present.

You probably didn't get a pop-up, because I observed this:
When set to ask, only the first time I opened IE 9 this pop-up showed. It did not occur until the PC was restarted. Then, when opening IE 9 the first time: pop-up - but only this one time.

But funny, that pop-up really was here.

np, glad I could help ;D

... I don't know, that's weird... I got mine set on auto-decide so the process you describe has probably been allowed and there's no way back, even if I set it back to ask I would never get a prompt.

Logos, explain to me: why is there an "Auto Decide" setting?
Shouldn't that be the core process anyway: to decide automatically.

well it's just if you don't trust it; I left it to auto-decide on this install because I think I get issues when it's set to ask... not sure it's that, just guessing.

 So imagine if the BS makes a mistake... can be a disaster. But every time I set it to ask, I had issues with restore point creations.
