« on: October 07, 2004, 12:29:20 AM »
hi all,
is it possible to set avast to automatically repare then quarantine (if reparing is impossible) infected files during a scan?
i'm using avast 4.1 home edition.

These advanced automated options are only available in the Pro version.

You only have a limited option in the Home (free) version, to send the infected file to the virus Chest (silent mode, with general answer no). My own feelings on this is you should use the default interactive action. This way you know exactly what is going on with your system. If you are getting so many warnings, that you want to automate this process, I believe you should review your security practice.

See the avast help file, Resident Protection: Standard Shield Provider Settings - "Advanced" Page.
