... avast!!! ???

Hi,

after a full rootkit scan with avast, around 70+ files that are inside: C:\## aswSnx private storage\webstorage\etc. etc. are detected as rootkits!?! see attached JPG for a small example

Of course as you can see, all the files are harmless.

Please ignore these warnings.

Rootkit scan doesn't fully cooperate with avast sandbox, that's why it doesn't know these files were created by avast and ignore them.
This will be fixed in next build.
