Have attempted several times this evening to download CCleaner from the Piriform website. Something I've done hundreds of times with never a problem. Something seems amiss though as my Avast Anti-Virus program has taken a sudden dislike to the download. It has completely blocked it. The attachment shows the contents of the Virus Vault with the files blocked showing. Has the website been compromised? False positives? Other files from the website download with no problems.

Just tried downloading from other trusted website with same results. Also had Avast rescan the above files in the vault & Avast reports everything clean. ???  Haven't changed any settings or other in Avast. May try reinstalling Avast & see if problem repeats.

I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

Update: Mysteriously the CCleaner download came through without a hitch today. Not so much as a peep out of Avast. Still scratching my head. Guess this post can be marked 'Solved.'
