HitmanPro. So I can test with the same file.

Although Hitman Pro might not be a full blown av as avast is, conflicts can be expected.

As for the detection,
what exact version of avast ?
what vps version ?

why u count hitman pro as av? not Anti Malware  like Malwarebytes :D
avast premier
program version:17.2.2288
vdv:170301-5

av is a misnomer for many years.

Here is why I said it.
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=194367.msg1354955#msg1354955

It would be a real bad thing if a nowadays security only would detect viruses.
That is like trying to name all the letters in the alphabet while you only know the A ;)

As of 19 March - this IDP.Alexa.51 has appeared on my computer as well.
This time it's pointing a finger at a program, that has been on my PC for a year.
'TinySpell' was downloaded from a very good website and used without Avast saying anything.
But since the last definitions update, it says I have this malware and puts it into the 'Virus Chest'.
Have uninstalled the program and have replaced it with an older zipped version - and avast has not screamed once (even scanned it).
Now I've got a file in virus chest, which I cannot delete - any help, please.
