Our anti-virus software (Avast) is reading the latest update as malware. Any suggestions? :?

1. Check for a virus definition update.
2. If that does not allow the update to continue, disable the antivirus, then proceed with the installation.
However, I suspect its due to your system needing a definition update.

Here is a reply to another such inquiry:

Below is a VirusTotal scan result of the Maintenance Release installer:

https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/ae866 ... /detection

This service scans a file with 61 different antivirus engines, 0 of which found a threat, including AVG. You may try updating your virus definitions in AVG.


If you look at the site referenced by the link, the program passes all the antivirus programs scans. I installed this on two different sites, with no problems.
