Windows 7 Service pack 1 installed. Virus warning is a FALSE POSITIVE

for anyone else getting alarming Avast Trojan warnings after installing Win 7 SP1, providing it’s the same as the one reported here, it appears to be a false positive caused by Avast virus definitions mis-labelling a dotnet file. Update your Avast prog and defs and you should be OK. Strangely, I’ve updated 4 other machines last coupla days and that problem only affected one (which made it look more credible and thus alarming)
