Avast how to report false positive
Avg false positive
INDEPENDENT support (chat for Windows, Windows applications, and many other things) – online scanners (URL/File/Java/others) – simply state the problem/ask your question in the channel and wait. NO SECURITY TOOL PROTECTS A SYSTEM FROM A USER’S DUMBNESS.
Is that link also available for false positives on a website? I’ve seen a few recently. For example, it flagged this freight forwarding company as a phishing website, despite the fact that it is completely legitimate. Anyway, after a few days, I noticed that the issue had resolved itself.

It has been much more invasive than it was previously. I’ve been using it for at least 17 years, and it seems to be becoming more invasive. But I’m curious… is this the case with all of them?
It has been a bloated mammoth that has little respect for anything since it was sold to Symantec, sitting its big azz in the middle of the leaving bed, drinking all the bers in the fridge, and monopolizing the couch.
Avast began as a single piece of software, but over time it has taken over the whole machine and decided who lives and who dies. It’s stayed a bit too long. It’s time to really kick it in the arse.
Did I mention how much I despise antivirus software? Norton was notorious for shutting down your computer when background scan operations ate up all of your resources. For years, Avast has been notorious for false-positive alarms, as well as intrusive, distracting advertisements and error messages. And we all know someone who has old signatures and patterns and feels he’s safe but isn’t.

Following are some recent cases of users receiving the following message after upgrading or installing Avast anti-virus. The message appears in the lower right corner of this screenshot and causes Business Plan Pro to show an Unhandled Error message:
If you just installed our software, the chances of this occurring are incredibly low because our installers are continuously screened for viruses by enterprise level antivirus solutions. That would require the presence of a virus on your machine at the time you downloaded our installer, allowing the virus to infect our files.
While this type of message could mean that some of your Business Plan Pro software’s files have been infected with a virus, we have confirmed that this is not the case at this time. Instead, this is an Avast anti-virus false positive message caused by certain problematic virus concepts.
When we launched Business Plan Pro after downloading and installing Avast antivirus on a known clean device, we received the same post. This confirms Avast antivirus software’s false positive identification due to newly released virus definitions. When antivirus programs mistakenly believe a file is a virus when it isn’t, this is known as a false positive alert. In our case, clicking the “Add the file to the scan exclusion list” connection allowed us to dismiss the error message and relaunch Business Plan Pro without further complications.

This article contains a list of every reputable Windows anti-malware vendor that I am aware of that offers a signature-based product. As a result, this list serves as a guide for anti-malware products that have been verified to be legitimate, in addition to showing you how to easily apply malware or false positives to all of them. That said, I make no claims about the effectiveness of any specific anti-malware vendor in detecting malware. Some of the vendors on this list are excellent, while others are virtually useless. This isn’t the place to talk about it. You can help protect virtually all internet users by uploading malware to all of them, regardless of which product they use for protection.
It would also be extremely helpful if you could give this article a rating. In addition, for those of you who are familiar with anti-malware vendors, please read the section on How You Can Help if you find anything wrong, whether it’s a missing vendor, incorrect information, missing information, etc. To improve and maintain this post, I really need everyone’s support.
