Same here. It's probably just a typo in the latest library, since avast thinks the notepad.exe is the old notepade.exe that the old QQpass trojan used to create.
If you tried to let avast quarantine or delete the notepad.exe file, you'll probably find that you'll cant open the notepad form the exe under \windows\ even with avast shutted down from the task manager.
To solve that issue before the next library update and fix, you'll just need to overwrite that notepad.exe with another, working one, and, of course, leaving avast processes closed in the meanwhile.

Have kinda the same problem - 3 alerts:

Sign of "Win32:Qqpass-DY [Trj]" has been found in "C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe" file.

Sign of "Win32:Qqpass-DY [Trj]" has been found in "C:\windows\SET4C.tmp" file.

Sign of "Win32:Qqpass-DY [Trj]" has been found in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe" file.

The last one is probably from the bug but can notepad.exe be in 'C:\WINDOWS' ???

When is the new, fixed pattern update to be expected?
It's 07:30PM now and it is totally annoying to have this.

When I try to update I still get "you are up to date".
Version is still 0643-5 here.

Thanks!

Tom

I tried to force the updating but nothing happens. Why? I still have the 0643-5 dangerous virus definitions. Does the manual update really work?

I'm using Windows XP Pro SP1 Dutch, with VPS 0643-5 dated 26.10.2006....
I had the same problem: "Win32:Qqpass-DY [Trj]" has been found in "C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe" file.
when I tried to put it in the vault, it sais that the file can not be found. Now I updated the latest version VPS 0643-6 but I still have the same problem: I still get the message Win32:Qqpass-DY [Trj]" has been found in "C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe" file   :(
what do I have to do? restart computer? shut down avast? ... I don't know much about computers, is it a real virus or a false alarm?

thanx!!
