I'm pretty sure this is a false alarm, but anyways if you have Avast installed and try to download the Thief demo (from this link: http://www.eidosinteractive.com/downloads/search.html?gmid=34) it pops up 2 warnings. The first is from the actual site which is http://64.92.245.137/ and it says that it's Win32:Adware-gen. [Adw] and is of type Adware. The second is if you try to download it, it'll pop up the same message. I can repro this every time. Anyone else with Avast out there that gets this problem as well?
