Net-studio USB firewall a TROJAN?????

When I scanned my hard drive using Ad-aware 2008 it says that this USB firewall is a malware(Win32.Trojan.Agent).. well im not sure if this is a false positive or something.. I just want to be sure if this software is safe to use or not..I downloaded it at download.com and I trust this site.. help me?

(I deleted the USB firewall for the meantime)

False positive

In reply to: Net-studio USB firewall a TROJAN?????

I have installed it in my test system and scan using different antimalware products. Only Ad-aware detected something on it and I am going to submit it Lavasoft so they can correct their detection.

The program is safe to use. If you will install it again, and Ad-aware still detect it.. please go to Lavasoft forum and report also the false positive by Ad-Aware or let them re-analyze the files then show your logs.

In reply to: Net-studio USB firewall a TROJAN?????

I had this program and I think It's not useful in anyway.
You can write your own much better If you know some programming.
