I just went to check "Givewayoftheday" and Avast went off and dropped the connection claiming a Trojan.

The only information I could gleam was JS: ScriptIP-inf [Trj] Connection aborted.

I tried again but Avast insists I ainít going there. :D

Iíve never had any problem in the past, so I wonder if anyone else has the same problem today?

looks fine to me. Norton's not bitching here.

That's interesting. Still no go with Avast.

Could be interesting to see what Anti Virus programmes detect it and which don't and whether it is indeed a Virus. (Trojan)

Are you referring to the StaffLogger 4.6 - if so Nod32 says clean on the download.

Because its a logging program Avast may be detecting as spyware - which technically it is :eek: OR you may have an infection on the PC ( just a thought) is it only that site that avast doesn't like ?

Tried in the latest version of FF and IE8, gets the same result

MSE is fine with it.

Just to clarify matters.

I can’t get into the site at all, let alone see what the giveaway is.

Avast flashes up an alert whilst the site loads and closes the browser down immediately.

The browser is Firefox and right up to date as is Avast Free.

I browse the site every day just to check if there’s anything interesting and this is the first time I’ve encountered this.

In fact, this is the first time in 20+ years I’ve ever had notification of anything by an Antivirus Programme. :clap Actually, I’ll be a bit miffed if it turns out a false positive. :D

P.S. Yes, it's only that site Wainui, all others are fine at this stage.

Its a false positive, seems the latest updates are causing the problem with giveawayoftheday Avast Forum (http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=65494.0) - Avast is blocking everyone.

EDITED: Can confirm its a false positive. Just installed avast on a workshop PC, with outdated def files giveaway loaded no problems, updated to the latest and virus warning.

I note normal transmission has resumed this morning so I guess Avast must have fixed things. :D

Perhaps it may be time for you to get into the Chat where, hopefully, you will not be taken seriously. :confused:
