Windows Logon, Nvidia Update and Java Chrome
« on: February 06, 2014, 10:16:53 PM »
I'm constantly getting theese warnings since I've updated to Avast Free 2014.

The first one pop up in every Windows Logon.

The second one when I try to do a update through GeForce Experience.

The third one when I try to update Chrome's Java.

Are those false alarms?

The first screenshot is windows defender updates and not a problem

The second is as a file is being unpacked prior to installation which uses 7z, it depends on what programme was being installed at the time

The third is a programme being downloaded by chrome and then being unpacked


Are you experiencing any problems ?

Thank you for replying essexboy.

The file that uses 7z is a update by Nvidia made through GeForce Experience.

The programme being downloaded by chrome is the latest Java update. 

Besides the alert pop up, I don't have any problem so far.

Select the report false positive options so that Avast can fix them :)
