Affected systems program (sppsvc.exe) is a Microsoft module so seems unlikely they have not signed it...

Good info.

Note that only one AV engine (Cynet) pointed to a module in question during VirusToral scan. The reason was “File is not signed”.  So as you said FP is quite possible…
One of the most interesting of my questions is that Avast full scan does not determine a problem, but quarantines the module and issues a threat alert… Hopefully Avast Lab will respond soon and mystery will be solved

Per your suggestion sent screenshots to Avast Labs. Got a response back that it was determined as FP ans database was updated. A week later I am still getting pop-ups. I have emailed new screenshots to support but no meaningful responses.
Very disappointed. Considering switching to a different AV engine.

The F-Secure name has always brought a smile to my face - I inwardly ask myself what does the F-in Secure means F-ing Secure :)
