guys, deactivate your file system shield until the next update ;)
I did, i even restarted to make sure something hadn't gone wrong in the update process. The file system shield continued to detect it even when stopped. That bothers me more than a false positive.

Please update your VPS to: 120205-1

I have done. Steam executables are no longer detected as false positives.
I still want to be able to disable the filesystem shield if i need to.

Since the last Steam update, which I installed some minutes ago, steamerrorreporter.exe has been a false positive again.

I fixed this problem by simply exiting everything I felt being a risk, then i exited avast, downloaded the steam platform update and then turn avast on again. You should try it.  :)

There have been several stream updates this afternoon (4), whilst I don't know if these may be related to a fix for the detections, I would suggest that you scan those files again and see if they are still detected.

I'm not a gamer so I can't check if this corrects the detection/s.

My Avast is still flagging that one .dll file as malware. :S Checked for updates on Avast; none available.

If you haven't already done so - You can reported as an FP as Aysn mentioned in Reply #17 above.
