One of your code download is a virus

Are you aware that this download:

is detected as containing a virus by avast?

Sign of "Win32:VB-FP [Wrm]" has been found in "http://media.wiley.com/product_ancillary/68/07645753/DOWNLOAD/575368_Code.zip\Code\Chapter 27\Downloader\Downloader.suo\DocumentWindowPositio ns" file.

My checks show nothing. What did your software actually report as the issue? Maybe it just has a problem with code files?

It scans my many code files fine.
This is no virus from the avast database though,
this anti virus scans for prototypes or signatures of viruses
as well. On rare ocations it does report a friendly software as a virus, still this does not inspire much confidence.
