lately, I opened the "avast! Log Viewer" and under "Program run" went to "Error" and "Warning" then I found this :
AAVM - scanning error: x_AavmCheckFileDirectEx: avfilesScanReal of (a file which contains pictures).
I went to that file and I noticed whenever I open it the error is marked in "Error" & "Warning".
I thought that Avast couldn't scan that file. so, I created an "Eicar Test File" inside the file to see if the Avast can scan and detect if a virus is there, but the Avast did.
can you please help me? I can't get this problem  !!!
this is the picture that may help you to better understand my problem.

This is just verbose of the logs... frankly, there isn't that many reasons to get worried.
Try to schedule a boot time scanning with avast and see if you're clean... Man, it's late in Moroco ;D

I scheduled a boot-time scanning and everything is ok. I made a right click on the file and got no error. however, it happens only when I open the file.

I found out where the problem came from. I followed the path then I notice the error is with a thumbs.dll file which a hidden system file (it exists with a file where I put some pictures). I think it was damaged or so. I just deleted it and when I modified my picuture file it was created again and I don't have that error any more.
