    I started a thread a few days ago about Avira missing a few trojans.
    AVG and Drweb CureIT gave those alarms for some BD total security files as they were infected which i am sure were not.I downloaded BD TOTAL SECURITY from Softpedia download center and i forgot to scan the files.
    So i uploaded to virustotal and the only find was that of DrWeb and even AVG did not find it anymore as infected.Now in fact Avira had missed only two trojans which Avg and later RISING free found only one . So no need to panic for those reports that i made.I think 4 of them were false alarms

    DRWeb helped identify the type and where the files were because Avg only told i was infected. And dr web cleaned it by deleting. great product by the way
