I am taking part of a discussion panel (TOS@FSOSS: The Student's perspective) during FSOSS and I have to prepare a short slide show to give a brief background about me. I am one of another 3 students who have been involved with Open Source during their programs in post-secondary institutions and will be taking part of this discussion lead by Mark Surman, Executive Director, Mozilla Foundation
I thought that I was being saved by avast but after reading the mentioned post in google groups, I have found that it might most likely be a false positive by avast. I do not think that Google is going to be happy with the impression given to many users that were using avast and tried to download chrome.
Here is the screenshots if you are interested.
Image 1: You can see that I did not even have time to "save" the file to the hard drive.
Image 2: I tried to download Google Chrome with Internet Explorer and get asked if I want to "run" the program. If I cancel and go to next page to download the file, I get the same trojan warning
