Possibly false positives..
by Carol~ Forum moderator / July 24, 2007 12:36 AM PDT


If you keep an eye on the Avira forums, both look to be a false positives. You are best keeping them in quarantine, until it's confirmed. For future reference, it's best to only post in one forum at a time, instead of posting here and in Computer Help. You said you have Avira installed and the virus is stopping the installation of AVG free. Only one anti-virus is required. Two may get you into trouble and may also be the reason you couldn't install AVG. Wink

Confirmed false positive..
by Carol~ Forum moderator / July 24, 2007 12:48 AM PDT

In reference to "TR/Dldr.Zlob.AADO.5". Sorry I over-looked it, in my original post.

'We are sorry for the false positives. And of course we are trying to keep them as few as possible. I know this file was also reported to be a false positive in another thread. It will be fixed soon.

Best regards,

In reply to: Thanks

No apologies necessary. I wasn't sure you knew, and thought I'd add in "for good measure".
