Hi everyone,
 
I'm just wondering if anyone else has been experiencing this. Recently every time I've launched a catch up service video (e.g. All 4, ITV Hub) using Google Chrome (haven't tried other browsers yet), I find that Avira detects a flash-related file that's created and moves it into quarantine. It doesn't affect my access to the service but I'm just concerned whether this is a genuine virus or just a false positive. 
 
I've added links to print screens to illustrate the issue. Hope someone can help, many thanks.

Anytime you come across a suspicious file or you want a second opinion, submit it to one of the online services that analyzes suspicious files.--In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, click the "browse" button, navigate to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit it for analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.

Thanks for this, did the analysis and seems like it is a false alarm. That's put my mind at ease, thank you!

If you suspect a file was falsely detected (a false positive), then you should submit a sample to the vendor so they can investigate and take corrective action.
