    I downloaded from , and I installed the SST Software V. in C:\WINDOWS\Temp\Saitek\Saitek_Cyborg_V3_Pad_SD6_32_Software\00000010\

    Please note I did not include all the log is very large

    Why Saitek includes in their software malware?

    the setup_0a.dll is listed in

    Also I uploaded to VT the file and have the same results:
    ~snipped as per forum policy~ TH

    I sent an email to in order to answer my question.

    As soon as they reply I will let you know


    In the contact Saitek form is not included Mexico, WHY?

    I can see Spain, so Saitek has to have support in Spanish, If Saitek think in Mexico we not buy, trade or sell Saitek products they are wrong

    Ok this not eBay but Mexicans know about Saitek

    Malware in their software
    and no Mexico support listed!! for me Saitek is not a serious company

    Now what I should do? Can I open Eset windows, go to Quarantine and add the file dll setup_0a.dll? will be fine this way?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me
