Take note for users who uses Avast! antivirus.

Since today's update, it seems have bugged or made Avast! Antivirus went nut, and detected almost *.exe and *.dll as Win32.Delf-MZG [Trj]

THIS IS NOT A VIRUS, it's false alarm. Please don't get alarmed by it.

Temporary solution is..either switch to Avira or don't let your Avast! Antivirus update itself.
I repeat, it's FALSE alarm, do not delete, move to chest or get panic. Somehow their latest update made Avast! Antivirus went nut.

If you got any other problems, please ask them in Technical Support section.

Edit: It seems the problem has been fixed.

Update your Avast! antivirus now to fix it.
- Right-click on your Avast Antivirus icon
- Updating->Program Update

    Haha, that's funny. Briguy92 on La Tale was complaining how Avast! was going ballistic on his computer and he had to play LT on his crap-top (see what I did thar?). I'm sure he'll be jumping for joy tomorrow when he reads this post

    Yeah, it has been fixed now. Either perform manual update or automatic update will do it.

    "Win32:Delf-MZG false positive was fixed in the latest VPS - 091203-1."

    @ main forum...hoorah
