Maybe your copy, but mine seems fine:

avant.exe - 1,403,904 bytes - md5 = d2cb229d4b1ae69f9b285dab36c82631

I shall check with http://virusscan.jotti.org/ and http://www.virustotal.com/

Looks like ClamAV doesn't like ASPack'ed files - but otherwise it is clean.

I checked the installation file too (2,095,074 bytes) - also clean.

I suggest that you re-download the file

I re-downloaded and extracted. Mcafee is still detecting it as a Trojan. Previous builds were no problem up to 07-11-2009. I suspect that Mcafee has done an update and is now reporting this as a Trojan. I tried the older releases and Mcafee is detecting it as a Trojan.

Any ideas?

What is the size of your file? Create an md5 of your file and compare it with the one that I gave above.

The MD5 of the file I have is d2cb229d4b1ae69f9b285dab36c82631. I am going to try to submit the file to Mcafee and see what they tell me.

That is identical to mine so I confirm that your file is structurally intact. I'll be curious to learn what they say.

Sure will. On a different note, for me, Avant is the Absolute best Browser EVER!! Please pass on my sincerest sentiments to the developers that without Avant, I feel completely handicapped.

You just have done. I'm sure that they will read it and appreciate your comments.
