When on auto it displays red line but it doesn't actually block anything. It only actually blocks stuff if you set it to Ask.

then why they haven't fix it

btw when i test the new version of avast that behavior shield better be working by the time the beta comes out because everything will be set on default if the beta misses a Rootkit,Ransom Trojan,leave the vm a mess or the windows vm wont boot i will not recommend avast. everyone got it

think of this as hw for the behavior shield

Love your tone as usual, break the door down, come in, make demands, then storm out.

Troll on, young one.

With all the negative you post here about Avast!, I would be surprised if you ever recommended it to anyone to begin with.
