    Anyone running Avira and ST after update of both having problems with Avira flagging ST with a rootkit?

    Yeah, i had the same problem last night. Sent them the spywareterminatorshield.exe as a false positive, and today I got an email from them telling it's a FP, and that it'll be fixed in one of the next database updates. This is like the 10-th time AntiVir flags ST as either HEUR suspicious file or in this case even a rootkit. I really don't get it how come they have never been able to somehow 'whitelist' that file once for good :cautious:

    My post had nothing to do with the authors question, thus it is deleted. Sorry.

    I don't think it's anything to do with like, (although ST seems to be getting a little impatient) but more to do with how the Avira heuristics operate when scanning for rootkits following a def's update, from what I gather.
    I'm a contented Avast! user, so don't have the problem. :)
