I am running the latest free version of Avast. I have, what I think is a virus, on a computer. It is running completely fine and Avast shows no kind of warnings, even with the Real-Time shield on.

How can I scan running processes to check whether it is malicious in Avast?

Is Avast fully updated? What's the name of the process? What makes you think it's a virus? – Indrek May 27 '12 at 14:42
    
It could be a new virus, it still might not have been added to the virus database. – HackToHell May 27 '12 at 15:26
    
I have the latest updates for Avast, including the client and virus definitions. – Nyx May 27 '12 at 18:18
    
@Marv You need to edit your question to actually ASK a question. – Moab May 27 '12 at 22:39
    
@Moab I thought the question was implied in the title. Nevertheless, I have edited the original post. – Nyx May 27 '12 at 22:56

if you think you have a virus, it is better you scan with another software, I suggest: Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool: http://www.kaspersky.com/antivirus-removal-tool?form=1

Give it a try and see if you are infected.
