[quote:975068f354="Admiralw238"]I found this on another forum

Seems AVAST received a bad update and now its giving FALSE POSITIVES about almost all my programs like Skype, Spybot Search & Destroy, and etc.

If you have AVAST and getting these virus popups saying that important programs like Spybot are trojans don't delete the file.

Right, the next morning I switched on my laptop, and avast recommended a system restart (that's never happened before) so I restarted. I reinstalled all the things I couldn't the day before, and everything is back to normal. Bizarre. Gave me a massive fright!
