    Just read ther Webtext:

    "Detected a virus Norton missed
    I downloaded this software today and ran it and it flagged the w32.gaobot.zx virus that Norton missed on a previous scan."

    This is one reference from one "happy" customer.

    Just take a look at the picture, this is a scan result from MY COMPUTER where i only write virus techpapers and descriptions...

    As a Virus Researcher i can assure that this is a false positive! It flags NVIDIA files as Gaobot! If course Norton missed this file, cause it was a classical false positive!

    VBS.Gaggle.D next false positive on Windows System32 Files! :eek:

    Before you delete anything what you probably need later i would advise NOT TO RUN this program.
