    Hi,

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

    Hi Pieter,

    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.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hi,

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

    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).
