    yes, the heavily advertised EvoGen is producing quite curious false positives, this isn't the only one i saw reported.

    First, it is easy to handle that alert.....just click on "Add the file to the scan exclusion list".
    Second, Evo-gen is still fresh and it needs some time to mature....
    Such problems are expected at this stage.
    But, in general, it does a great job. Of course they advertise it....wouldn't you do it?

    @siketa : such excuses don't work in professional world. avast can very well beta-test evogen for as long as they like.

    we didn't force this upon ourselves did we?

    True, but it does more good than harm. ;)

    Absolutely - was simply tying that thread to this one in the event there were any similarities.
