    I attempted to download I.E. 7 and was pushed over to switch.atdat.com for the download.
    Is this on the up and up ?

    I believe the site you are referring to is switch.atdmt.com
    Some similar cases, please read:

    NOTICE: Avast Antivirus detects a suspicious component on Internet Explorer 7's homepage. See screenshot below.

    EDIT: Sorry, it's an FP.

    Yeah ... I get those too. I set Avast! to silent mode for web scanning so it automatically aborts the connection. I'm okay and I still got IE7 for the updated interface and security.

    Anyway, anyone know what the alert was about ? It said it was zulu, but is it dangerous or anything ... ? (For reference, I was told that the address containing the infected sample is always the Microsoft logo ...)

    The alert was a False Positive which was fixed in a definitions update released on October 20.
