avast -ignore or delete?

I am missing sometning. Sometimes my avast detects what might be a dodgy file and suggests it should be referred to a vault. However, the only "click" options appear to be ignore (the default) or delete the only other option. I chose the default "ignore" but how do I get to the refer to vault option?

I don't use Avast - but you could try a different program and get rid of Avast. My personal choice is Microsoft Security Essentials, together with MalwareBytes Pro.

I think that the setting you need will be configurable by opening Avast -> RealTime Shield and click on one in the left pane then click on the 'Expert Settings' button in the right pane and then click on Actions in the left pane of the popup and there are three tabs 'Virus' 'PUP' Suspicious' and various options to choose for each one.
