I've had many many popups with this message today on my laptop. They all reference .tmp files in the .dropbox.cache. Last time I used my laptop on Monday, there were no problems. There are no problems with my iMac also running Avast and synced Dropbox. I keep deleting the threats from the Virus Chest, but more show up. Is this a real infection or a Dropbox/Avast problem? Why isn't it showing up as a problem on my other computer?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, -Mark
