several files, including ones pertaining to Steam, an exe file essential to running Warcraft III, and my router updating file, have been tossed into Avast's virus chest for no reason starting today. I have spent most of the day trying to get them out. I have tried:
-restoring files (option from right clicking file in Avast Virus chest)
-restoring files and adding to exclusion list (option from right clicking on the file in the virus chest), then rebooting comp. Repeatedly
-manually adding to exclusion list, rebooting comp
-repairing Avast (from Program files options) and rebooting comp
-updating avast and rebooting comp
-shutting off Avast's realtime protection scans and rebooting comp
-shutting off the realtime protection, turning it back on, and rebooting comp
scanning using avast confirms the files are not viruses.
I have submitted all the files to Avast as false positives.
This is very annoying, can anyone help me?
