Sorry, the sandbox features (including autosandbox) are not supported on XP x64.
well that solves that issue but I still don't know why avast blocks read/write features to and from my pen drives i guess till the bugs are gone i'll just have to stop the file system shield when i want to edit my files otherwise they will be deleted thanks for everyone's help with this issue sincerely rjpjrblue

I installed Avast 7.0.x 2 days ago and soon after noticed I could not rename any folders. Further, I could create new application files but could everytime I tried to save an update to a file, I was told the file was "read only" and I had to save the update as a new file.

After trying for the past 2 days to figure out what caused my file/folder problem I stumbled on this forum and decided to uninstall Avast. My system now works perfectly again.

Reply #48 would have helped as well. ;)
