UPDATE YOUR AV-Database!

The FP was fixed tonight by aVast and is not longer shown as a Virus!

Thx 2 the aVast-Crew!
I'm (as always) very proud that "my" aVast again responded so quickly and so fixed (again) so fast what my Protect made so save! As i told your: the aVast-Crew are really FIT and FAST!

- THANK YOU -

Thanks for the heads up. How in the world an app that has been out literally for years gets listed as a virus and rendered useless is a mystery to me.

It would have been a good touch if those of us who posted a FP report would have gotten an email advising us that it's fixed. Perhaps that's coming later today?

This was really not fun, and a black spot on an otherwise positive experience with this product. I have recommended AVAST to many friends and co-workers. Hopefully this will be a once in a lifetime mistake.

No, they don't do that, they would rather spend money elsewhere.  Imagine the time sending emails for a false positive that even effected a single percent of their user base of many millions of people.....it would take longer than it is worth.

No one posted what the specific detection was, but it was probably a Generic signature, they use those so one signature can catch many forms of malware.

Avast! is very low on FPs.....I mean very low....so while it might be a bit much to think this is a "hopefully once in a lifetime event" (if you mean a FP in general),  take heart that you have what is at any given day the AV with the lowest false positive rate possible.
