I'm having the same problem. Since last night suddenly I got the virus notification from single web page and since then it comes from every single web page I go to, or atleast I haven't yet found page that wouldn't give the warning.

VPS is up to date (current version 080125-0).  ???

This is weird. Since we've tested it to our best efforts, so I believe this is not merely avast x webpage problem, ie. classical FP.

Do you have any web-filtering software installed which may change the pages?

Can you please try to save webpage and then scan it with on-demand scan of avast? If it does return the false alarm, can you send the zipped sample to virus@avast.com and also report what networking/web software you use?

Thanks.

Ah...I found a solution. For some reason Sunbelts firewall (Kerio or wth it's?) doesn't seem to work that well with Avast anymore. When I turned the firewall off totally now Avast doesn't say anything anymore, and when I turn it back on every webpage "has virus" again.

I had a same problem with cooperation between avast and kerio(sunbelt). Try to turn-off firewall and then start it up again. In my case it helped somehow :)

Fantastic work!
080125-2 works fine and there are no more conflicts between Sunbelt firewall or Counterspy2.

As always Avast! and the brilliant people that comprise it's staff have done an amazing and very fast job.

Great customer driven focus! Thanks for all your help!

We have a user currently on 080125-3 and getting VPS: Malware-Gen  hits when browsing the http://www.smithbarney.com site.  Load the home page and click "Indices" on the navigation bar near the top to try it yourself.

Actually, try the big "Research and Commentaries" tab instead.
