Hello :)

There has been a recent issue with SpywareBlaster and AVG 8 - I am not sure weather this issue has effected Avira though.

What exactly is the issue? Is Avira detecting SpywareBlaster as a rogue suspect/infection or is it picking up hazardous ActiveX controls?

Either way it's a false positive on Avira's end.

I checked on Google and some other forums and it seems that no one has reported this issue - therefore it must be very recent.

I want you to try this:

1. Uninstall SpywareBlaster.
2. Once SpywareBlaster has been uninstalled, scan with Avira again - post your results.

You may have downloaded a SpywareBlaster installation that had been injected with malicious code and Avira is picking this up. Could you tell me exactly where you got the installation file? Also, I recommend you submit this file to VirusTotal and see if any other scanners detect malicious code - post these results aswell.

xxmaxixx,

Malware, or suspected Malware problems should only be dealt with by fully trained personnel, and the problem posted in the Malware Forum. If you suspect that you may have an infection, please post about it here.

Do not accept advice from people who have not completed a recognized anti malware training program.
