« on: September 07, 2011, 06:13:01 PM »
One of my computers just updated the Windows XP and my Avast blocked and deleted a trojan horse! What the heck is that?

Avast has not been unknown to identify legitimate updates as Trojan Horses.

"Race has now replaced rule of law officially. In one speech our president has reversed 60 years of healing the racial divide and destroyed the dream of Dr. King. The result will be an exact reversal of the conditions existing before The Civil Rights Act. And the hardest hit will be the children in whose name the left always claims to act. Well done Obama". - Pendark

Update!!!

 It wasn't the MS update that Avast detected, it was ClamWin Update that was the culprit. I changed it as a false negative and it sent an email to them so they could check it out.
