I'd like to inform you that Ad-Aware detects the FSG exe packer as a Web3000 spyware since version 5.8.

Have you tried informing Lavasoft?

I didn't try to contact them, because i don't like to get in touch with software companies, so i posted it here, because i think someone will inform them (not me)

Thank you, jucabala. :)
I will notify Lavasoft about this.

I downloaded the latest reference file hoping this problem had been solved but, no, it's still there :-\

Go into Configuration > tweaking > scanning engine and check the option to "reanalyze results before displaying". That seems to cut down on false positives based on name recognition (which LS claims it no longer uses).
