    Hello,
    This morning I started a OnDemand scan and right away Avast detected a Virus in C:\Program Files\ServicesController XP Uninstall.exe with the name of:
    Win32:Trojan-gen(UPX)

    I suspect it's a false positive. I did scan my PC then with Dr.Web CureIt and SuperAntispyware and they found nothing.

    What do you think?

    I'm guessing it's packed with UPX.

    If it's still being detected, please submit the file to avast virus lab virus@avast.com

    Cheers
