Definitely no Avast! expert ;)

By disabling the File System Shield you also disable the AutoSandbox, and he didn't even know that ;D

Yea, this guy was pathetic. I like to watch AV test videos to get a feel for the program. Some say they are a total waste of time, and statistically irrelevant, but not to me.......This guy was just flat out weird.

I look at AV youtube videos like recruiting a softball player. Say I go to see her in a game, and she goes 4-4. I know that doesn't mean she'll go 375-375 for me over a season, but it gives me a general idea of how she handles herself at the plate. Same goes if she happens to go 0-4.

That's how I see the prevention videos. Not the gospel, but a pretty good idea of what a user might expect.

YouTube "reviews" should be banned (here and globally).  ::)

Yes, he's a square idiot. However, he made one point visible (even though unintentionally): wouldn't be too bad if the menu "Extra Protection" showed the Sandbox being disabled when FSS is turned off.

hmm this test is the worst av test ive ever seen in youtube..he disables the basic shields(along with the sandbox which is part of the file shield)..then he gets annoyed coz of the sound of avast pop ups and he says it doesnt find all of them..and instead of boot time scan he runs Malware bytes and catches whats left behind saying that avast isnt good at cleaning..ok i cant believe i gave +1 in his "views" number for watching it..

+1 to that.a notification saying that sandbox is disabled is good to exist..

Autosandbox is a part of filesystem shield... He can know that when it's settings are under filesystem shield settigs  ;D

BTW Cudgelwap is only 16 years old so he don't surely know what is "real antivirus", he knows only av's like norton etc... but the antiviruses like avast! are unkown to him.

And avast! software should add the note to autosandbox for dumbs like cudgelwap - "Autosandbox is turned off when file system shield is turned off"
