Avast! Detecting my Whole Install as Malware!

    For some reason avast is detecting the whole site as malware. I'm not sure why. First it started out with the favicon, now it's every single file.

    False positive probably.

    Check your server and files for malware though.

    Everything is clean. I contacted Avast about it

    If you're going to use a free anti-virus

    AVG is the answer.

    If paid...

    Kaspersky is the answer.

    I once had avast tell me that avast was a virus. :confused:

    Probably because you styled it into a VB5 look alike. :ROFLMAO:

    Like always things change every year with anti-virus. Kapersky still is good. It was great. Bitdefender is on top now when it comes to finding viruses.

    I found the whole network of NFOServers is blocked by Avast. So I contacted the host also.

    This couldn't be more FUD. I am doing a full system scan, and Bitdefender is using less resources than Chrome with 3 open tabs. Been using it for a few months now, and not a single false positive, and it is also consistently scoring high in both UI and security reviews. If I am not mistaken, the 2013 edition won the Product of the Year from AV-Comparitives. But whatever, they are probably still struggling inside a wet paper bag......

    Or better, don't use an AV at all and only enable javascript for trusted sites.
