We had a similar problem over here on this machine after yesterday's
update.
It only occurred once or twice though, although we've been seeing a few
emails come in that generate virus warnings as well since then. I'll be
keeping an eye on it for the moment.

I read the following on freerepublic.com about an hour ago.  Avast False
Positives

I have Avast free anti virus on a computer and have seen what appears to
be
some false positive trojan horse hits. Has any other Avast users seen
this?

I just went to open Outlook and Avast has come with an alert.
Supposedly a  Trojan called Win32:Delf-MZG [Trj] was found at
C:\Program Files\Freedom
Scientific\Shared\OOMHelper\1.0\OOMHelper.dll. This is clearly a JFW
file  and I wondered if Avast was making an error due to inaccurate
classification. Has anyone else had this alert?
