Which is the virus name that is being detected in your computer as false positive?


I will restart my scan and let you know

First, this has nothing to do with the beta/pre-release (it's only a matter of the virus database), so please don't post about it into this particular thread.

Second, I checked the signature and I don't think there's anything wrong about it; maybe you ran the tool in the other OS and it was swapped from memory into the pagefile, but I wouldn't call it a false alarm (so I don't think anything will be changed about it).

You are correct... I was scanning my vista hard drive ( where I only selected, in this case C drive) but avast continued to scan D drive as well and that is where "virus" was found at above directory....
 I don't know how can virus be found in pagefile.sys only.... N00b speaking here

Beta builds don't get reported on the web site only regular builds, http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-4-home_pro-revision-history.html. So you would be waiting a while until the regular program update is released.

So 1227 is a beta release?

I don't think that this is a beta, since I got it with a regular update (I wasn't using the latest beta - I was using 4.8.1201) ;)

Well it doesn't look like this is a beta release but a regular release as I'm downloading it now, as on this new system I didn't have the beta installed.

What threw me was reporting this in the beta topic.

I was in Beta with 1218, I saw there was an update so I manually clicked on Program update, it then proceeded to download the 1227 version, no problems so far on Windows 98 S.E  :)

If that is right then the Beta was not out for very long.
