I had that problem with the previous daily build -- it was mildly exasperating until I realized what was happening (Avast! was quietly deleting the EXE).

My workaround then was simply to whitelist the CHIRP installation directory -- and I submitted a false positive report at the time.  Newer versions may need newer reports -- I’m unsure of the granularity of Avast! versioning.

However, whitelisting the directory is a one-time, everlasting workaround.

(That does of course presume that the user trusts CHIRP to remain virus-free.)
