Avast Giving False Positives

Recommended Posts

Avast free anti-virus software (usually an excellent product)- has started giving false positives (trojans) after the automatic update about 1 hour ago.

Flagged are well known, legally purchased programs that I have had installed for a long time.

 

Suggest that Avast users consider carefully before erasing long-standing programs from their system. Hopefully they will fix this issue soon...

 

Have a good day!

I've noticed this myself this morning. Hopefully the next database update will correct the issue.

According to downloadsquad.com (downloadsquad.com/2009/12/03/avast-has-a-freak-out-goes-on-a-false-positive-spree/):

a new .vps has been pushed, so manually update Avast if you're still having problems.

Thanks! I was getting errors and alerts when trying to delete files on a flash drive. It got pretty annoying, to say the least!
