    Resolved [RESOLVED] Autosandbox in Avast Free v7

    Hi all,

    I just bought a Airlink101 usb wifi n adapter. I use the connection s/w that comes with it and it starts when Windows starts. But Avast keeps telling me that it is going to run it in the sandbox - except that it won't run at all. I have to manually run it again. I look all over Avast and can't find a way to tell Avast that the Airlink101 program is not a threat and it should allow it to execute normally.

    Anybody knows how?

    Set sandbox to ask rather than auto decide then tell it to allow the exception.

    Right click Avast in the systray, select Open Avast... and then click additional protection>autosandbox and then
    settings then click "autosandbox mode"... "ask"

    Don't believe everything you think.

    Thank you, guys. That does it. I didn't click to set it as "Ask" before - no wonder I didn't see the place to exclude programs.
