That's just it, he doesn't use avast, but GData which has avast as one of its two AV engines (so doesn't have the same settings available in the GData interface) and that is what he is permanently pissed about.

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.

if you dont stop calling me a troll bad things will happen

Seriously, this is totally OT, and the last time I am going to respond to you, ever, unless you use Avast! and have a problem you need help with.
I was raised by a disabled person....and I understand autism....I know very well the difficulties you face.  

I also know very well disabled people have a habit of getting headstrong about pushing their barriers.  

If you came here for help with Avast!, I would totally make concessions for you, try to fix your problem.  I might even be nice about it.  You deserve no less.

But that is not what you do.  You do not even use Avast!, and you come here repeatedly with nothing but negative to say about Avast!, with little or nothing to back it up.  You come across as very rude, pushy, and demanding, and people are going to respond to that negatively.  This starts a battle of words and opinions.  Not the best battleground for someone with autism.

To give you a metaphor, you are the equivalent of a paraplegic trying to compete in the Olympics.....it just does not work, that is why they have the Special Olympics.

I understand autism in no way limits your intelligence, just your ability to learn and communicate.  And as a disabled person, you are free to push your barriers....but there are some things that are always going to be limited in.  

I'm sorry if I offended you, but as I said, when you push your barriers, things don't get easier, they get harder, you have to learn to expect this......and crying "I'm disabled" after you start something is too late, nor does it give you a free license to do as you please.

So Voodoo really works? Are you from Haiti per chance?

Seriously, it would help if a technical explaination of how behavior shield works could be given.

If it only works when set to Ask mode, how is that any better than the run of mill HIPS on the market? Is the average PC user capable of responding correctly to the Ask alerts with the information provided?

For example, does it auto sandbox the process with limited rights, send it to Avast cloud scanners for detailed analysis and if OK, auto releases it from the sandbox all invisible to the user? Comodo's Defense+ with Sandboxing enabled does. This is what "auto" mode means to me.
