That would appear to be the case and the signature has been corrected in a VPS update.

Same happened to me. I put it in Virus Chest pending an outcome and I'm pleased it is a false positive. One question though: I chose to restore the file from the Virus Chest/Infected Files section. A pop up confirmed that my action was successful but the migwiz.exe reference is still in the virus chest. If I have restored it correctly should it not then disappear from the Virus Chest altogether?

Thanks

Yes a copy remains in the chest (safety measure), confirm that the restore action was successful by checking the file is back in the original location. If so then you can safely delete the copy in the chest.

I've just done that too - thanks.

Good to know Avast eers on the side of caution, even if a hint of panic at the time, and that we have the support of a good forum.
