    Have you notified Avira and SuperAntiSpyware?

    What was the name given in the detection and where are the files located? Avira could be detecting SAS's quarantine? Avira released an engine (heuristics/generics) update yesterday, so if it's a HEUR/... detection you could send the files to heuristik2[at]avira.com to get them fixed quicker, if it is a false positive.

    It aint HEUR and i had notingh in my sas free quar.

    Somebody beat me 2 it: http://forums.superantispyware.com/viewtopic.php?t=813

    I had 4 detections and i removed them after the second scan. Lately im not 2 fond of avira's support. I sended in around 30 HEUR detections during the course of several months and only 2 got investigated. Fukdat!

    Antivir will only detect these if you've configured it to detect "Security/Privacy Risks", so unchecking this is a temporary solution until Antivir/SAS sort it out.

    I believe they are removing the false positive - we will check once the definitions are updated.
