Avast Autosandbox question
« on: May 08, 2011, 08:35:24 PM »
Hi

This popped up today, sorry if some words are wrong, because my version is not on English. :D
'' For your safety Avast has putted this file **** automatically into sandbox ''

I have Autosandbox on..
What should i do now? How can i view that file?

File is Battlefield 1942 unistaller, which leads to windows host process.. rundll32
Everytime it seems to put it to sandbox..
Weird.

This was the file that was moved:
C:\Users\ComputerUser\AppData\Local\Temp\set4D83.tmp

Submit the file to virustotal and check if it is clean.
If so, go to avast autosandbox settings and remove it from running there (File Shield > Expert settings > Autosandbox).

Open avast user interface, then look under real time shields. File system shield is the top one.

(you may also want to go into forum profile and hide your e-mail address from public to avoid spam)

There.
You can set the autosandbox to "Ask" if you want to control it.

I can just see this:

You can add the sandboxed files to exclusion list ( see image ), all added executables will be forced to run unsandboxed.
