Win32:Trojan-gen {VC}
« on: April 06, 2003, 02:41:37 AM »
Hi, I'm back again with a ?.  I download everything to a particular folder, then always run a scan on folder before going further. On doing so a while back, avast found the above virus, tho Norton & AVG did not.  Tried a 'Repair' from the virus warning window, was told it could not be processed, perhaps 'cause  it has not yet been installed.  Search of the forums only gave info that it might be a false positive, further searches gave me nothing.  Don't really know what to do at this point.  Would like to have program, yet certainly don't want  to invite something undesirable in.  Yet, with my only info that it may be false positive, I'm tempted to install & see.
I'm on an XP Home Edition.  The file name is GF_Setup.exe which is for program GreatFamily.  By the way, I downloaded program from a source I trust.
Thanks in advance        Cheryl

Can you please send the file (or the link to download it) to support@asw.cz ? This is the only way how to verify if it is the false alarm or not...

Thanks in advance!
All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

Just wanted to thank K.D. for taking the time to look at this program that was causing an alert.  Knowing that it was a false positive, I installed it & am not continuing to get an alert.  It's good to know I can ask questions and get such a helpful response.  Again, thanks    Cheryl
