Did a search on the file for autogenerate and auto and I don't have anything
like that in my snort.conf file

You don't happen to have config autogenerate_preprocessor_decoder_rules in
your conf do you?

 Add this to your threshold.conf file:

# Get rid of annoying http_inspect alerts
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 19
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 16
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 15
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 14
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 3
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 2
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 4
suppress gen_id 119, sig_id 7

Those are the ones we get rid of because they alert constantly. If this
isn't working, then the location of the threshold.conf file you are
editing is incorrect and it is not being read when snort is started up.
