+ - Avast having problems with false positives

Submitted by NotSoHeavyD3
NotSoHeavyD3 (1400425) writes "So just today Avast anti-virus is going nuts claiming I have win32:delf-mzg [trj] infecting pretty much everything. I should have googled it first before going nuts scanning everything but it looks like this is actually a false positive that pretty much cripples my machine. At this point apparently there isn't much to do but disable avast and wait for a fix to come out. Anyway hopefully this can prevent other Slashdot'ers from trying to clean out their entire machine of viruses that don't actually exist."
