Title: Avast 9.0.2006 falsely classing windows 8.1 language pack as malicious
Post by: demonix00 on October 19, 2013, 04:03:44 AM
I just finished the windows 8.1 update a little while ago, and went to re-install the Japanese language pack (from the language control panel) only to have avast class it as Win32:Evo-gen [Susp] and move it to the virus vault thus mucking up the installation of the file.

Now I would have submitted the file, but since I don't know what to put into the corresponding fields I can't really do anything (and the file is around 100MB which I'm not sure can be sent).

Is there a quick solution to getting this fixed, or should I disable the corresponding shield for the duration of the update and hope that it doesn't flag afterwards.

The file it caught was d8ebee123ba2344f9597de0c75047c1d.tmp and the location of the file was C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\ec9aab167c9fe139b475ac357976d405\inst\$dpx$.tmp
