    I was just trying to install FlasH Get( not FlashGot of FF) for Opera, and during installation Avast gave warning of Adware and quarantined a file. Anybody got this experience? I was not able to send it to Virus Total or Jotti although I tried many times. Is it false positive? I scanned it with Antivir- clear. With KAV- many months old signatures- clear.

    Thanks. But I think it should be said as having Nag Screen than rather than alarming word of Adware. BTW in this way Opera free used to be adware, and so are some other free legitimate programmes.
