"Avast installed Win32 Malware-gen after update"
Has good detection
I just updated Avast and did a scan.It found a High Threat Win32 Malware-gen in it's own Program Files.I thought it might be a False Positive but I ran MalwareBytes that also found it in the Avast Program Files Folder.I tried to repair it.
I also found this info below.Been using Avast for awhile but not sure what to do now ???????Well some good news.I went back to my other computer were this happened about 4 hours ago and they had and update that fixed it Thank God.Avast and MalwareBytes don't find the Win32 Malware-gen for the aswRunDll.exe anymore.I read on Google were others were having this problem so they must have jumped on it and fixed it on a update.
The process aswRunDll.exe belongs to the software avast! Free Antivirus by unknown.
Description: File aswRunDll.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files". The file size on Windows 7/XP is 107,056 bytes.
It is a file without information about the maker of this file. The program has no visible window. File aswRunDll.exe is not a Windows system file. Therefore the technical security rating is 56% dangerous.
You could remove the entire program avast! Free Antivirus using Windows Control Panel.
