Avast 6 released with AutoSandbox feature which on detection of suspicious program execution warns you to run it in the virtualized environment where you can open it in the Sandbox, or normally (if that application came from trusted source) or cancel the opening. You can exclude some safe files/applications from running in the Avast AutoSandbox so that you won’t have to experience this warning again, here is how.
