What version of Windows are you running? Are the files in question stored locally or only on the OneDrive server? If you're on Win 8.1, know that the 8.1 version of OneDrive uses small placeholder files for items that aren't stored locally so that everything appears in the Windows OneDrive folder even if it's not stored on the local PC. Avast might not understand those placeholders and report them as errors.

yea, i got the error thingy as you see in the picture when it was active while using my microsoft account with win 8,1 but simply loging out from the microsft account and into the one i made while installing windows, and removed the onedrive folder worked.
