I'll inform my contact person at Lavasoft and maybe they can convince Avira that the file isn't dangerous.

On another topic!? i installed Emsisoft 6.2 Anti-Malware and Avira said it was a Trojan.

Can you disable Avira while you are fetching and installing the toolbar.
Doesn't that mean that Ad-Aware is denied access to the file? Then Ad-Aware wouldn't be able to update its list.
I stopped getting the file warnings because i clicked deny access?
