Oh Nasty

Hallo Andy

Just found that on my Windows 7 ( Vistumbler ) a Nasty Trojaner (2x) +1 is in the EXE ( This is NOT ) looking good.

What AV are you using Freebe?
The best acceleration you can get on a Mac is 9.8ms^2

Sorry Andy had no time to come back to you and then you were down.
So it was on my Windows 7 64bit using a Free AV = AVG Free.
It came up with 3 warnings :(
1x Virus
2x Trojaner
But i know you dont use such things :mrgreen:

Gruss Freebe

I will check it out though. I know we've had false positives from AVG in the past, but I will verify that

yeah AVG tends to not like vistumbler that much :/
I would go with the Microsoft Security Essentials, haven't had one false positive with it yet.

Use a genuine antivirus + firewall application to remove these kinds of latest threats as these are harmful. You can use Vipre Home Premium as it has both antivirus and firewall and is a total security application. I personally used Vipre antivirus and really like it.
