Because AVast is the single suckiest AV on the planet and you should get a better one?

Your AV is showing what is called a false positive, its when AV's use sig scanning (aka Heuristics) to scan a file and look for what seems to be a virus, it could be a simple line of code which is a few bytes off but it will be picked up as a potential virus.

The trainers here don't have any, so put them in a folder and set the folder to be excluded from scans.

As a person who used AVAST up until recently, I suggest you dump it as soon as you can. Avast is horrid. Seriously. Grab Avira or something similar, and you'll be so much better off.

Get AVG and learn to use it properly and you will be fine.

In my former profession I sold and used almost every kind of antivirus there is and ever was.

I have settled on Avast and have been using it for years now.
One of the reasons is,,, You can tell it what 2 do and what not 2 do.
Just add the cheathappens site in the exceptions list and you can download any trainer you want and still be secure that you won't catch anything nasty online while you're somewhere else.

I understand that when people have 2 do a extra step for something that just worked immediately before is a inconvenience.
However it is a way for you 2 be sure your safe and for avast it is a precautionary step.
Only include exceptions for sites you trust.
