Anyone else have Cisco's Spark (or updater for it, Launcher.exe) being flagged/quarantined? (360TS repeatedly quarantines launcher.exe, applicable to updating spark, even though I whitelist it and restore it)

Seems to relate to the avast bunch of F/P's recently. Just needs an update or reinstall the program, then update.

 

I left a link to the avast forum where they discussed it.
