Hi! Let me tell you that I have used Avira security programs over the years and I always get a ton of false positives in every scan. I have cross checked with other reputable scanning software and found this very infected files of Avira are perfectly fine. I know there is a new hype brand name scanner out there called G-Data. It is number 1 in the top 5 in PC magazine. Stay clear of it! It is the first dual scanner using BitDefender which is very good and of course Avira as the second engine. With G-Data, you get a ton of the same false positives as Avira (of course). If you want to trust the best possible security software, believe it or not, Symantec Norton is very good (yet, full of bloatware as well, but meant to protect your system; but the engine is tons better than it used to be), Kaspersky is very, very good (known to have the best engine, just a ton of settings you may have to do, a PITA); and BitDefender is also very good as well. I have BitDefender because tech support chat is instant, and easier to set up. I consider these the top three that have the best engines out there that have been proven to keep false positives at bay.
