Is anyone else having this problem Even just typing that into google has Avast pop up a warning.
I do not have a problem
maybe its a false positive send a mail with the problem to firstname.lastname@example.org
Having the same issue. Only with Yahoo.com. Last update was at 4:00pm today. It wouldnt suprise me if it was a true trojan with them. I've been wanting a new start page anyways lol. Any suggestions?
Avast is the king of FPs... Probably it's the reason...
Welcome to Wilders.
Why settle for only one start page when IE7/FF/etc. allow multiple tabs?
Here's one suggestion.
I've been using Avast for a few years and I could probably count on one hand the number of false positives I have had from it, so I would have to disagree with your statement.
iGoogle is a great Home page. News, Weather, MapQuest, PacMan (the arcade game), Comics (Garfield, etc ..you name it), plus many other things. I switched to iGoogle, from My.Yahoo about 2 months ago and it has been nice. I recommend it to all.
Thanks all, I'll check out igoogle
My sister called a little bit ago and said she had the same problem with Yahoo while running Avast.
Edit: It looks like a FP. http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=36506.msg306157#msg306157
New update came out. Problem fixed.
Lol it would be true if it was some Yahoo Game, they have some nasty things there.
It's probably an underhanded attempt to get you to switch to Google.
Is What I Use As A Homepage.
Pretty simple ^^
