I have no idea where should I put this...

When I try to download the AOM client ( the download cannot be completed becasuse when it is almost over Avast! detects Win32:Agent-AKK [Trj] and refuses to let the download be completed. Any ideas?

It's a false detect by Avast, contact them about it.

PetriW, there's also the possibility, that somebody rooted your server and did evil things to your baby.
But most likely it's Avast! which considers your app as dangerous (which some people might consider true due to memory usage and such stuff).

PS: You might be interested in signing your apps and/or supplying MD5/SHA1 of the archives in this forum for the paranoid.

I just downloaded the archive with no problem. Since Avast autoupdated earlier today it seems like it really was just a false alarm... Which is good. Hopefully there will be no more such errors.

Why should memory usage be dangerous? Maybe you should stick to the C64, it has very little memory, and is thus completely safe...;-)
