It has been posted elsewhere, Igor says it is unencrypted in the memory and being detected by avast.
I'm not sure if they can correct the detection. Seems an incompatibility of two running antivirus, don't you think?

Maybe ALWIL will work with ClamWin to fix this problem. :)

ClamAv isn't resident. It's on demand only.
Something Alwil needs to correct. it started on the 12th so it's something that was changed in avast!
The problem wasn't there prior to that date.

Nope, it's ClamAV problem and I'm personally again doing anything on our side. It's usual non-encrypted data in their database, and it started because either them or we added that particular detection in the db.

But the root of the problem is still in their inability to provide inspection-safe db.

If you don't intend to do anything, at least let me j=know what to do on my side so it stops annoying me. Thanks.

There is nothing to stop you excluding the .clamtmp files in both Program Settings and Standard Shield, using the wild cards add this,  C:\*\clamav-*.clamtmp that would save a) entering the full path and b) take account of the no doubt changing file names (e.g. the string between the clamav- and the .clamtmp file type.

Though personally I would be looking at the same suggestion as kubecj.

Hi you all,

Have the same alert as bob3160, only this started to-day, took no action on getting this alert:
Sign of "JS:ScriptSH=inf (Trj]" has been found in "K:\ClamWinPortable\Data\db\clamav-425ba79fa75915476839999d53b0a2c8f.00000039c.clamptmp" file,
So for the mo I have excluded ClamWin\ClamWinPortable\Data\db*
and everything fine,

that really should be ?:\ClamWin\ClamWinPortable\Data\db\* the ? which allows for the clamwin portable version USB not being allocated the same drive letter and you need to have the \ after db and before the wildcard.

I'm also not keen on excluding a whole folder as that could leave a small hole in your security, but to exclude only the troublesome file types within that folder, ?:\ClamWin\ClamWinPortable\Data\db\*.clamtmp

Hi DavidR,

Well tried the download with your suggestion, and got a alert, made the precision as ClamWin\ClamWinPortable\Data\db\*clamptmp and all is well,

If it is now working then I think you made a typo in your post, clamPtmp ?

This indicates that you also have clamav installed and the problem is that clamav doesn't encrypt its virus signatures, so avast is detecting them.

So I don't know if you have somehow got clamav running resident (though I though it was only on-demand) and that would cause a slowness. Freezing could also be caused by conflict between two AVs.

Personally I would suggest that you uninstall clamav or exclude the files as mentioned in the above posts.
