Well Still no option in Windows XP 64 bit to turn off the Auto Sandbox feature. No pull down option nothing it works in XP Vista And 7. Yes people will say why not switch to windows 7. Well windows 7 sucks as a service machine needed for repairs and hard drive recoverys XP 64 reads everything 7 says oooh hard drive not readable.

So please I need to turn off this option in Windows XP 64 bit for the reason When I try to open some of my hard drive recovery programs it almost locks the computer because sandbox option comes up which I hate with a passion.

autosandbox component should be disabled in WinXP 64-bit by default (in 1270 beta build) -- i'm going to recheck it if it's really disabled. If not, today's new beta refresh will fix this bug.

in this new version, all HTTP requests from all processes are routed through WebShield (AvastSvc.exe)

for example if i want to make a rule in my firewall to block babylon translator from connecting to the internet i can't do that anymore with the new avast beta version.

Good question:
I think it will be the same as it is right now, some report no problems and some have a problem.

Hmm. I'm in the middle of testing some programs out right now, but when I'm done, I'll install the latest beta and see for myself.

Hi friends do this new build showed improvement in the autosandbox and behaviour shield? Because last time when i tried some exe files(mostly patches for some software program) to run they never trigered any autosandbox or behaviour shield alarm. Those sample are flaged as dangerous by more than half the scanner in virus total. In my opinion though avast's defination doesnot pick up the danger but still Behaviour shield or more importantly autosandbox should give some warning.

Thank you all

Could you guys please confirm that the Script Shield works in Firefox and IE 32-bit (any version)?

Thanks
Vlk

Nice release!

Installed right over .1203
Script shield is working perfectly with Firefox 6 and IE8.
WebRep working with FF6.
So far all programs behaviour inclusive Outlook 2007 seems pretty normal.

Thanks for this one!

I installed Avast 6.0.1270 on the top of 6.0.1203 in my Windows 7 PC and it seems to be working fine...

Script shield is working in IE 9 and Firefox 6...

Sandboxie users, can you tell me if you have the same results as me?

If I use firefox without Sandboxie Avast starts to count the number of analized scripts for example mine counted 213 but then I satarted to use firefox Sandboxed and the script shield didn't continute to check more scripts.

Is it normal? or Avast is not checking scripts in firefox if you use Sandboxie?

Advise..rm
I can certify you my Script Shield works fine while browsing in Tzuk Sandboxie v. 3.57.07 :D

I installed Sandboxie beta 3.57.08 a few minutes ago and I still see no reaction in my Script Shield while broswing thru Firefox 6 sandboxed.

Any suggestions?

How does avast! check the scripts? Do you have a JavaScript emulator or an interpreter that analyzes the scripts somehow?

The update popups...

What I like:
I like that the version number is included.

What I don't like:
The button...It just doesn't look right...

Script shield not doing anything here, Firefox 9 with NoScript. Doesn't matter if NoScript is enabled or disabled.

is the messenger protection useless? The webshield should also scan the same traffic
