Is my computer still ok? When I boot scan first I choose to fix all and move to chest but second time I delete them.

Same here. Luckily, Malware bytes is also there and didn't report anything so I think this is false. This loses my trust in Avast.

P.S. Captcha is very bad, unreadable. Tried twice already.

I made a stupid mistake and let the boot scan delete a ton of files off my computer. I realized 3/4 thru that something was wrong and this couldn't be a legit virus.

All sorts of files were deleted off my computer including personal files.

Is there any way to recover them or at least see a log of files that were deleted during the last boot scan?

Its going to take me days to reinstall everything and get back all the data I lost

I am getting the same  random VBS:Malware-gen on my Opera browser. Full scan found nothing bad in my computer. Is it a false positive?

Sucks to hear this happened to someone over a false positive.

This is truly awful D: Thanks avast...I'd usually say this in positivity .Because this virus scanner has helped me in the past, but it's just one big mess today.

I hope someone can pop in and tell me if there is a logfile somewhere so I can see the deleted files. I have Windows 7 if that helps. I have no idea which log file to look at, there are so many.

And the program itself won't give me any way to look at what went on during the last boot scan.

I am also so sorry to hear that pal! DX Avast had it's downs from time to time with false positives, but overall progress and security is still so great.

I was wondering, the VBS Malware is flagging one and the same page, some part of opera main page, that's normal? Although it does on different pages.

I get this every time I go to my Amazon.ca cart.  Haven't seen it on any other sites.

False positives for me as well, about every 5 minutes starting today. Was trying to upload a screen shot, but I can't get that to work, either.

well luckily it looks like I have a system restore point from a week ago. If I do the restore will that bring back all my files? Sorry if thats a dumb question I don't know much about this stuff.
