« on: August 18, 2011, 05:47:31 PM »
My "Solution Center" flagged an issue today and i read it with big surprise.
Basically Microsoft wants me to send Avast log to use in their Defender application. :o
Does Avast know of this?
I use Windows 7, Danish

Don't worry about that.
To stop sending Microsoft unidentified items.
Go into Tools Microsoft spynet Check I don't want to join Microsoft at this time

Simply put,
Microsoft also has a Community from which it gets information about new
and unknown infections similar to the Avast CommunityIQ.
In your case, Microsoft wanted you to supply information to their community.
If you don't want to do that then follow SHARKY7SHARKY advice.
