Just picked it up today in the process of downloading an update for Adobe Air.  Whenever I open Chrome, Avast blocks an Adware application.  I ran two full scans on my PC using 2 separate programs and removed apps that had been added to my browser all to no avail.  Still, whenever I open Chrome, Avast pops up a threat detection notice.  What should I do?
