    NOD32 works:cool:
    2 P/C's and almost 1 year.
    Actually I know the app' was/is safe but NOD (weekly deep scan c/w BS extra settings) said potentially dangerous win32/pswtool ras.a in a zip file.
    However I bought NOD x 2 and it is my 2nd line of defence.
    I trust it - file deleted.
    :D :D :D

    Lol? It's an internet connection tool that you most probaby downloaded on your own. It's not like you just discovered most dangerous virus there is...

    Nevermind, confused with something else because of word RAS...
    It's still just an riskware. MagicalJellyBean is a Windows CD key reader, i've used it few times...

    I am one of those people whose WinXP was shown by MS WGA to be invalid!
    I bought the PC from a large (UK) supplier. 2 other people I know have PC's from large international dealers and have the same problem.
    I thought I would find the installed key and compare it with the sticker on my PC case.
    I got rid of WGA notification.
    My PC supplier says it is a MS problem.
    :mad:

    and if you wish and do insist , you can contact Microsoft to fix the problem :D :D :D I am sure they can do something for you so you benefit from the fact you are legal customer (sorry if off-topic)

    For both Windows and Office products...good little tool with many fully legitimate purposes...I use it a lot. :thumb:
    One of the reasons I don't like enabling pda.

    What what did the comparison show?
    Unfortunately for many buyers..lots of blackmarket serials show up with quite a few clone vendors.

    It is (I understand) a bug and M$ charge you for reporting bugs.

    I wonder if there are any other keyfinders that NOD would allow:cautious:
    :D

    Bugs can be fixed . I often contact Microsoft for variety of things and they are always helpful . Everybody can say many and bad things about Microsoft but one is absolutely true - they do respect their legal clients.

    Send me the bill if they charge you for reporting this :D :D :D ;) :-*

    It's not a virus - it's a potentially dangerous file, but it has a legitimate purpose and I use it myself rather often at work.
