Here's the story:


I launch LoL and play it for some time. Then I quit, and do sth else. Then, on a different user account, I launch LoL again.


And all of the sudden Avast AV displays a big nasty warning and quarantines LoL launcher.


Well, Avast is AFAIK known for false positives... but, what if I'm really infected? I'd like to make sure if I'm infected, or if this fortunately is just another false positive of Avast.


Avast quarantined C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\projects\lol_launcher\releases\\deploy\LoLLauncher.exe


Avast thought it was infected by Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]


I went to the quarantine, right-clicked this file and clicked Scan. Fun fact: Avast did not detect anything funny about this file this time.


I did a full scan of my system with Avast, and even downloaded and run http://www.kaspersky.pl/security-scan . None of them found any viruses.


My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64b.


What should I do to make certain I am (or, preferably, I am not) infected? I'd like to start using my PC w/o any fears again... and possibly unquarantine this LoL launcher ;P


Due to some urgent work, I'm afraid I'll have to use my PC tomorrow. And a few next days also. But, I'm not unquarantining LoL yet.

Your best option is to report it at Avast forum as possible false positive: https://forum.avast.com/
