every p2p file has a trojan?
« on: February 23, 2004, 12:35:01 AM »
No matter what file I try to download via kazalite avast shows it has a trojan? I no alot of files are bad on p2p but not every one of them?
 here is an example of what i am getting all downloads are trojans so says avast? Can this be true?

example:   Win32:SdBot-44 [Trj]  C:\My Shared , Win32:Sddrop-B [Wrm]Folder\download1077492565522250.dat\[AsPack]

notme, why don't you try an on-line scanning of these files? (maybe Trend Micro).

Which is your avast! and database version? Are they updated?

When i disable p2p protection
i still get  a Trojan or worm detection on all files I try to download at the moment for experimental purposes I tried to download 44 different files all had a problem according to avast, is there a setting I could possibly have wrong? my previous AV programs which are not as good as AVAST in my opinion , avg,McAfee, and NORTON would only find a few bad files? Avast is showing every download as bad?

Do you have more than one av at the same time in your computer?  :(

Are you sure that 'trash' from the others do not stay in the system?
Why did you write 'avg,McAfee, and NORTON would only find a few bad files'?

those were the AV programs i used over the years , yes all former Av profducts are removed cleanly, via ADD/ REMOVE plus , RegSupreme and of course the uninstaller each came with including the one you have to get from NAV's site for NAV 2003.

is it possible AVAST is showing all.exe files as a trojan or worm for safety reasons?

Kazaa network is overflowed with viruses and trojans. The only files that are not infected are audio files.
