I am getting the same alert some 30-40 time a day. BTW, the last one I got when I opened this forum.avast.com - avast is trying to eat up his own tail?
For those who are interested, the alert is always the same:  http://s193453338.onlinehome.us/truminfi.JPG
Also, possible the same period, I start getting run dll error:  http://s193453338.onlinehome.us/kbjerat.JPG ,
which you can't even find on the earth! I do not complain, since I am using the program on my own risk, but just bring up the company’s ethics.

Avast, please stop this marketing campaign or get off your free version. It just does not fit your good reputation so far. I would rather purchase a different program, than to be bombarded by fake alerts. But in this case you lost me as a paid customer. The best.

This is a really bad situation. I tried updating just now, and it has not helped. It is still blocking all my regular sites and giving me the same message everybody else is getting. I had to turn off all my shields in order to get to the pages I needed to get to (which now leaves me vulnerable to viruses....wonderful...great)! Can't even read my AOL mail without that warning coming up, but it literally blocks everything else. Not good! I have always loved and recommended Avast, but there have been some serious issues lately. This one is bad because we must disable it in order to get anywhere! Much damage can take place in that time.

Can you try to repair your installation?
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove. Then choose Repair function in the popup window (Repair).
If this does not help, can you uninstall / boot / install / boot again?
