sorry, I just wanted to know if anyone had greater experience on the problem.
Any way to delete this post?

Pondus,

Why would "Error: Reached the end of the file. (38)" come up in "Scan Results" for a install program stored for ASUS LAN driver? I had other files with the same Error, but simply deleted those.

Unsupported, or possibly truncated archive file - i.e. nothing to worry about.

Igor,

Thank you for the prompt reply  ;)
Is the only way around this is to add it to the "Global Exclusions" file path?

Well, you can set your report/log settings for only "infected" files, removing the "hard errors" from them :)

Tech,

I've looked through every option under account and settings and can't find the option you're referring to? Maybe not included in the Avast 8 Free antivirus?

That setting, however, affects the report file... not sure if it has any effect on the results window.
