Can't install foldit.exe win beta, AVG flags as threat detected. Have already messaged admins for AVG and facebook foldit app, but you may want to contact AVG as well. Now file foldit.exe download is canceling automatically.

Norton does the same thing. It deleted the .exe program the first time I tried to use it (and again after I re-downloaded and re-installed it). It says that the program is performing suspicious activities and it blocks and removes the exe file.

Just letting you know - I upgraded to AVG Antivirus 2012 and the threat flag went away. The Norton false positive should probably be opened in a new thread if still unresolved.
