Hi, I am using Avast Antivirus. Today I made a smart check and Avast noticed me about potential malware (Win64:Malware-gen) in MPCVR/MpcVideoRenderer64.ax
Is it a false positive or I should not ignore it?

I received the same malware notification on avast too after I installed the 15.7.0 Mega.

That is a false positive. When in doubt you can always check with VirusTotal website. A generic detection by just one or two vendors is usually a false positive. Certainly for normal and popular software like K-Lite.

It seems it has already been fixed by Avast?

Yup, I just reinstalled the 15.7.0 Mega, and it looks like avast fixed it.

It is possible, because I filed a ticket to Avast support
