We don't know this info - it's not stored anywhere in avast. And it's virtually impossible to find out as lots of viruses are detected by generic methods and some other share common names...

It's been discussed here already.

fyi: works here too (win2k sp4). haven't noticed any differences, so that's probably good. I'll just imagine that it scans thoroughly, but without any viruses it doesn't really catch my eye ;)

does this beta test cover more than the program update that was just released?

What do you mean? Like if you're expected to do something with it besides installing it..? :)

Hate to say it, but a problem I had earlier and that seemed to be solved has returned in the Beta version. When leaving the pc unattended for a certain period of time Windows XP tries to go back to the user login screen. At that point Avast is giving a false virus infection again.

OK, so why don't you nuke this file? E.g. by disabling System Restore, or by deleting the file e.g. in Windows Safe Mode... It has been discussed zillion times here how to handle the \System Volume Information infections...

Thanks
