What is the avast! AutoSandbox?


The avast! AutoSandbox is a special security feature which allows potentially suspicious applications to be automatically run in a completely isolated environment.
If an application is started and avast! 6.x detects anything suspicious, it will let you choose if you want to run the application in the AutoSandbox, by default. As the application will be completely contained within the AutoSandbox, this will prevent any damage being caused to your system by any infected applications.
The AutoSandbox can be configured to:
- Run suspicious applications automatically in the AutoSandbox.
- Exclude specified files that should always run on your normal desktop.
- Be disabled completely.
