    avast!, clamTk, bitdefender and kernel files

    Hello. I installed avast! on my 12.04.164bit to scan for Windows viruses, as I plug my mobile here and on other machines, so I don't want to infect other machines.

    avast! point to take care of kernel files. That never happened before using bitdefender Rescue Disk (more of it later).

    ClamTK detects PUA's every single time I scan. It points to google chrome.

    bitdefender could not mount my harddrives, it said they're protected and could not mount them. How can I mount? I tried
    fdisk -I
    but command does not exist in that live version.

    The PUA files that ClamTk flagged is a Potentially Unwanted Application and are nothing to be concerned about in Linux but I would have ClamTk Delete them anyways or you could just empty your Browser Cache.

    When ever you surf the internet some sites will attempt to install PUA's.
    If you were in Windows you might have ended up with an Awesome new Toolbar or maybe a new Antivirus Program that flagged everything as infected.

    I am not familiar with Avast! or Bitdefender for Linux.
    I use ClamTk and has worked Great for me.

    If you ever have a File that you want to get a Second opinion on like that PDF File use this...

    Have you tried Comodo Antivirus on Linux.

    Also it is just Potentially Unwanted Software. Like a toolbar.
