So.....example are you guys running the exe file and then auto sandbox catching?

Yes, but i do it in a controlled virtual environment. AutoSandbox only works on execution, so yeah, you have to execute the program first. It's not 100%, but it's very very (surprisingly) accurate for a blacklisted sort of way of operation (opposed to Comodo's whitelisted way of operation).

VMWare Player for example does that and its free. Just make sure you don't run it on your main system, thinking you run it inside virtual computer...

avast! 7 is in the works for sure but its in a very early stage so don't expect it anytime soon. Besides, avast! 6.0 is very powerful already and quite frankly it doesn't really need a successor just yet.

I would expect that at some point, avast 6.1 will be released as the culmination of all the little improvements made since the initial 6.0 release.
