    Avira antivirus (free)

    Just the other day Avira popped up a window reporting that Superantispyware contained a trojan and subsequently quarantined it. (Happened on 2 computers I have). Because Avira admitted - about a year ago or so - that on some systems it had a memory leak - and that was true because one of my PCs would completely freeze up after a while - I replaced it with another antivirus program.

    Has anyone else had this trojan alert ? I presume it's a false positive because Superantispyware has a good reputation in it's field.

    I'm becoming increasingly put off with Avira - even tho it's highly rated on many sites/forums.
