    Today my Avast virus scan started popping up telling me files are infected and the files are pictures that I use as desktop backgrounds with Wallmaster. It cycles the backgrounds every minute. I've had the files for a few months now and I'm 99% sure there not viruses...
    Any ideas on why it's telling me their viruses?

    Is your copy of Wallmaster legit?

    Yeah I have had it for several months and on a different computer too (used the same setup file) and I have never had problems. I just deleted all the background images and Avast stopped detecting them as viruses. I'll just download some new ones and see if things go better.
