    I'm too lazy to submit this FP to proper forum.

    As today, Avast! detect taskmgr.exe as a suspicious threat

    Object: C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskmgr.exe
    Infection : Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]
    Action : Moved to chest
    Process : C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.exe

    I set/add it exclusion list for temporary solution.

    That's my thought. Maybe it's not a false positive?

    Task manager EXE is often a target of malware. Considering others don't have this issue i'd say you are actually infected and avast! detected it now.
    It's a non essential app so system will continue to function, you just won't be able to open Task Manager.

    Use "sfc /scannow" command in Command Prompt and let it check the files.
    If any of them is corrupted or infected it will replace it.

    abu_shofwan, do you happen to use this?
    http://flyakiteosx.en.softonic.com/

    Otherwise, it really looks like an infected file - either straight infected, or incompletely cleaned from a former infection.

    Thanks

    The number of badly cleaned files, even with most of the virus code left-overs that we pull from our own cloud is really huge. I guess it is one these. Interesting to see that Evo-Gen "loves" these files aswell.
