Hi,

This morning, I wanted to start again crunching for GPUGRID and...
I'm getting an Avast alert when downloading ACEMD beta version 8.15 (cuda55)
URL : http://www.gpugrid.org/PS3GRID/download/acemd.815-55...
Infection : Win32:Evo-gen [Susp]

So, download is currently blocked by Avast.
I guess this is a false positive, am I alone to get this?

Thanks,

Illkane

Normaly you have to exclude the boinc folders from the AV Guard. Exactly to avoid such things ;)

I got the same when I installed on my main rig the other day. There should be a drop-down menu near the bottom of the Avast warning window. If you click on the arrow at the side of the drop-down and tell it to ignore the warning, it'll download. It will happen several times since it has to download several files. Once you've told it to ignore, it'll do so automatically after that.
