I converted my old Workstation in Internet PC and my newly installed AVAST defined two 3dsmax.chm files as infected.
I could not believe it, this machine (my old WS) has never had an internet connection and worked always like a charm. Has anyone here a similar experience.

I even had the fancy idea, that maybe there are a kind of (Autodesk) Trojan, installed deliberately for feedback information, or just to make possible a thorough analysis if something happens and we need help from the Autodesk support staff.

This was a joke take it easy (Autodesk).

Report it to the makers (of Avast) as a false positive - any AV which is "signature" based is prone to that kind of thing :smileyhappy:

This is impossible Steve those are the Max 8 and Max 9 Help files i think.
AVAST has an (e-mail) limit of 1024 kB for this kind of support, I have to send them by post.

I'm not an Avast user, so I didn't know about the limit - they're only expecting small files to be infected? :rolleyes:
