    Just a heads up to those of you that use Avast for your antivirus program. Avast's latest update is giving false positives for Win32.Delf-MZG on many common programs such as Skype, Tivo Desktop, Spybot, Nero, and a bunch of others.

    If you get an alert for this trojan virus from Avast you should just choose to ignore it and disable Avast's realtime protection until they issue an update. Either that or just uninstall and install a different antivirus program.

    Looks like Avast has released anoter update of their virus database to fix the problem.

    The bad database is version 091203-0, the fixed database is vesion 091203-1.

    If you are getting the false positives, just force your avast antivirus to do an update and that will fix it.
