FG 3.7 fgrun not working

I found that if the antivirus program is on (mine is avast) then fgrun will not open
I pull FG 3.7 from ( on november 27)
Can you check this out and fix it?

does avast report a problem and lock you from the fgrun binary? if so, this would appear to be a problem (false positive) in Avast!... if this is true then they need to get the repost and they should fix their signatures...

Avast seem to have a few false positives. Some can not get the MP tracker at mpserver15:

But, I also have got an iMac of 2011 (OS X 10.6.8 ) with Avast Mac Security free installed, and I don't get any warnings or blocks from Avast when I open the website from Firefox.

I'm having this problem since I changed anti-virus about one month ago.
