On computer startup, the common Adobe Flash player update box opened. It mentioned the end of Flash player at year's end, and gave the option to update or uninstall if not using flash based content on my computer.

I chose to uninstall, as I could always reinstall later if need be. AVAST came up with a warning, "Threat Blocked - We've blocked INSTALLFLASHPLAYER.EXE because it was infected with IDP.Generic - what would you like to do, 'move to virus chest' (which I did) or 'more options - create an exception'.

Is this happening to everyone, ie; is it an AVAST false positive?

@dougjp,
No I did not get any Avast warning when I uninstalled Flash Player when prompted.
If you have the offending .exe in your virus chest, then you should be able to submit it for analysis from there.
See:

PS: The best place to ask questions like yours is in the "Virus and Worms" section of the forum.
