I was messing about in Small Basic and Avast! flagged something that I wrote as a virus, here's a screenshot of the code

I think was I was attempting is fairly obvious (and pretty basic!) I'm not sure what would flag it as a virus though? I'm sure I've missed something obvious as I've only just started using it.

Thanks

What version of Avast?

Did Avast name the Virus such as..... \win 32\ hacker tool\ or anything like that? That's just an example.

Pretty weird, we certainly know you did not write a Virus program.

It probably detects it as Evo.Gen (Suspicious).. Just turn off avast! while you are coding, I had similiar problems to your, and it started to auto sandbox when I started debugging! The reason it does that is because no one has ever downloaded it and it tries to prevent your computer from being infected.

Yeh it just ends up crashing small basic and it's kind of annoying... I've set file system shield off for when I'm using small basic because I still need to use the internet for somethings...
