    It's completely gone for me - at least so far.

    Avast has just started throwing up error messages again for me.
    Might be worthwhile checking for whatever was causing it last time.

    I'm having a similar issue on my end as well with avast. Throwing up the radio skin warnings, and other warnings about the forum itself. Had it before and it went away. Any resolution to this on the user end?

    Richard: I was in the IT field in the 1990s, and helped Richard Ford develop the AV testing methodology used by the NCSA.

    Avast is not that great of detecting viruses. I think you may be getting false positives. Try the four step process below.

    1. Get a really really good scanner. F Secure is one of the best and they used to have 30 day evaluation copies you can download.

    2. There is a way to detect viruses by detecting the actions of a virus. Trend Micro makes some good generic detectors. I almost ended up working for Trend.

    3. Download and run Spybot

    4. See if you can find an eval copy of Malware Bytes.

    This is a rather old thread and no longer applicable.
