DOWNLOADED SURYL VIZION ON CNET, MODS PLEASE CHECK TROJAN!

DOWNLOADED SURYL VIZION ON CNET, MODS PLEASE CHECK TROJAN Win32.Kolab that arrives with it..have been cleaning my machine for 4 hours with the most harsh cleaners and anti trojan progs (trust me I have tried them all) and still have 4 hidden files that Hitman Pro found but cannot delete and even Combofix hasnt cleared it all. Hitman Pro suggest it acts 'like a rootkit' although Avast calles it a Trojan.
AVAST found it and sprung into action as I downloaded Suryl Vizion on Cnet.
Please be VERY WARY OF THIS PROG until it is checked out.
It will not Install, Delete, or remove itself from the registry.(so far..not giving up!)
going back to continue the work..so disappointed as I had just cleaned the PC and reinstalled the system.

Sorry for the problem you are experiencing, as this is the first report We have had thousands of downloads and run our software against every top tier anti-virus. Depending on your anti-virus software, it may be flagging a false positive.

Also, Avast has our software on their white list so it should not be flagging. We take security very seriously at Suryl.
