FP for DVDVideoSoft .dll file
« on: May 04, 2010, 03:42:52 PM »
My scan (using the most recent build of AVAST 5 free) flagged "C:\Program Files\Common Files\DVDVideoSoft\Dll\HttpVideoDownloader.dll" as a PUP:Win32:PSWtool-L.  It's from a pretty common software package, so i ran it through Virus Total and Avast 5 was the only one that flagged it.

Thanks for your product though!  It's great.

So, disable PUP scanning :)
Potential Unwanted Program (PUP) is an option while scanning.
If it is a false positive, hope Alwil team correct it. Did you send the file for analysis (when it was detected)?

1. You can send the file to Chest and then send it for analysis within Chest.
2. If a virus alert warns your, you'll have a button to inform (send) it.

Not unless they are using 5.0.533 (pre-release build) as the 5.0.507 build is not able to send from the chest, it appears that it has done so but it hasn't.

Edit: Corrected build version number.
