This started last night, and has been worrying me. What the heck is a boost_interprocess? From what I have seen online its some sort of coding thing, although their are topics on avast forms that say its a rootkit or something. If this is a false positive what program did I install that caused this to show up?

Hi tempaccount87.


This was confirmed to be a False postive and the faulting defintion has since been removed from the database.


Please update to the current database and the detection should no longer occur.
