AIS Latest Beta

How is this auto sandbox any better. It is labeling windows task manager as suspicious. This is a waste of my time to allow something that should be OK by default.

Very strange...
Can you send your C:\Windows\System32\taskmgr.exe file to www.virustotal.com ?
Or you're talking about a file in other folder?

We have seen one instance of this before that I can recall and it also related to explorer.exe and in that case the user was using some sort of customised file version to give additional functionality.

So is this the default or a customised version of the file ?

Update found that topic relating to customised versions of OS files being pinged by the autosandbox (rightly in my opinion), http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=94053.0.
