Trojan Horse???

Recommended Posts

JD, I doubt this is anything but a misread, but everytime I run my Pest Patrol anti-spyware software on my RC4 installation, it tells me that two files in my RCV4 folder are "trojan horse" spyware. The two files mentioned are "unins000.exe" and "unins001.exe" It even mentions the vendor or pest as "WorldAntiSpy". I've never experienced any software or hardward problems resultant, but I'd thought I would mention it. I know that some legitimate and good software files are falsely identified as spyware and sometimes viruses! Randy Jura, KPDX

Common problem. I just had a similar problem with false positives using another anti-virus. One day after downloading a new signature, it was flagging files and blocking installs. The next day, they updated the signature again, and it was fine. The Inno setup program and "unins000.exe" are used sometimes as trojan carriers and are also frequently mis-identified and victim of false positives. Do a google search and you'll see what I mean.This was my pain. It deleted all the instances of this file on my system http://2brightsparks.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=11301
