Using Windows Loader version 2.1.7 by Daz
« on: August 28, 2012, 12:04:41 PM »
For activating windows7 professional using Windows Loader  version 2.1.7 by Daz available in internet, when I am scanning the Windows Loader.exe using Avast version- 7.0.1466, it is detecting the executable as Win32-PUP-gen[PUP].

I have three queries regarding this:-

a) Is this report possibly a false-positive?
b) And if I use this software [Windows Loader  version 2.1.7 by Daz] then will it infect  my computer or any future poblems?
c) And if I forcefully use/install this software [Windows Loader  version 2.1.7 by Daz] is     it  possible to detect/overcome issues caused by virus/Trojan?

Thanx in advance

To be honest i would never touch these programs.  Using this program can be illegal as it allows you to activate windows, meaning you will be using pirated sofware once you use this program. It basicly is a hacking tool.

Thank you sir, for your prompt reply, but is there is any future threats, if I use this software [Windows Loader  version 2.1.7 by Daz] like hijacking windows or stealing windows information e.g. credential.

Thanx

hi Predrag,

As you are replying to a thread started almost a year ago, and one that deals with use of an illegal program at that, don't think any help you require is forthcoming anytime soon.  Avast!, when a system scan is initiated, will alert not only to various malware, but also to PUP's (Potentially Unwanted Programs) if that option is selected.  Pup loader.exe would be one such.

It's possible you did not know use of Windows_Loader_v2.2.1 is not legal, and all Avast! is doing is letting you know this is possibly a program you do not want on your system.  Use of a PUP can be for good or bad, but once installed, the potential of destructive behavior and damage to the system always exists.
