Hi, Please bear with me as I'm afraid I'm not too clued up on computing, especially on how to deal with this type of warning.
I installed Avast5 when it first came out but I kept getting this warning message that C:\Windows\system32\mbamswissarmy.sys file was a Rootkit: Hidden Service and being pretty sure that it was a FP, I uninstalled Avast. I am of course running MBAM (paid version but realtime protection disabled) and I'm also running SuperAntispyware Pro with realtime protection enabled of which I update and scan on a daily basis and I've never had a hint of infection.
Yesterday, I decided to give Avast another try, installing version 5.0.545 after uninstalling MSE using RevoUninstaller. Program installed ok but this evening I again got the above same warning! I ran a Boot Scan, result of which was "no infections". Again ran MBAM and SuperAntispyware full scans with no infections, so what do I do now? I want to keep running Avast, if and when I receive this warning again, do I tick the "ignore box"?
When I was running Avast last time I entered MBAM files in Exclusions Settings, as yet I havn't this time round.
I look forward to any advice anyone can offer me, incidentally, my Avast5 program is free version.
