Hello PCIlliterateGal Panda Antivirus does not encrypt its virus definition files
that is why avast detects them as "infected"
I suggest to you to try another online scan like Kaspersky or F-Secure Online Scanner.
You can also schedule boot time scan with avast!Schedule Boot-Time Scan
with avast! Click on the little button placed up in the left corner, and select Schedule Boot-Time Scan
- Scan all local disks
- scan archive files
- click on Schedule
On the next dialog Operating system restart needed
Now avast! will restart your computer and start to scan before Windows fully loads. If detects infections while boot time scaning, you will be given choices for actions, choose move to chest
actions and don't delete anything.
If this also fails then try the steps bellow:
To repair avast click Start
> Control Panel
> Add/Remove Programs
scroll to avast! Antivirus and click Change/Remove
button from the options choose Repair
and click Next
. You need to be connected to internet to repair avast!
If the above does not resolve the problem, try this
Download avast! uninstall utility
do not use it yet.
Uninstall avast! from Add/Remove Programs, reboot.
Now install avast! again!
Hope this will help you to resolve your avast! problems
