FlashGet and ashQuick.exe
« on: June 18, 2005, 02:58:13 AM »
Just to let Igor knows that new versions of avast! solve the FlashGet problem being scanned by ashQuick.exe.
Old versions have problems not scanning archive names with blank spaces. New ones work perfectly.
Just use: C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashQuick.exe without parameters.

But, fgiebar.dll is still detected as being infected by Win32:Adan-062 [Adw]
A very old false alarm  :P  :P

Thanks for the message.

As I understood, the detection of fgiebar is somehow questionable. Some consider FlashGet as adware, I think... (don't know any details).

It's not a matter of someone consideration.
FlashGet has an ad version and a non-ad version.
This dll can't be, at the same time, infected and not infected...
It seems the same as for the keyloggers... Is there any keylogger that is not considerated like a Trojan?
I want one but avast! consider all my tentatives as a Trojan installation  :-\
