    Avira insists to treat a 41.1 MB file as a trojan !
    This file is the main exe file of EA Sport's game FifaManager 2008 it's name is Manager08.exe and it's size is 41.1 MB

    I already have put the file it in the exclusion list, but I waited for more than a month hoping that Avira will discover it's false positive but it didn't till now. the size of the file is too big to send it to them.

    I hope that some Avira's guys will read this here in Wilders.

    not limited for sure, but for a low width internet connection like mine it will take ugly time to send 42MB email.

    Thanks for your help
    I really not worry about this false positive, only want to help Avira to correct this fault and to prevent sad time for some novice users who play FifaManager

    Post this on Avira's forum and a mod or knowledgeable community member will respond. Most likely they'll download the file in Avira's lab and try to replicate your experience.
