    I recently installed the a-squared free anti-spyware. After the in-depth scan, it reported this: D:\Downloads\Security\NOD32_Official v2.70.39.rar/ndntenst.exe/advheur.nup detected: Heuristic.ArchiveBomb

    No other anti-spyware program (or NOD32) picked this up. It is shown to exist in the official version I downloaded from eset site. I installed it and then archived it away.

    Thanks for any info

    Well, as it's clearly a False Positive you'll want to ping the a-squared folks so that they can fix this at their earliest convenience.

    Thanks Poutine. In fact it was after I resd your thread yesterday that I downloaded a-squared (on Thankful's recommendation) LOL
    It does look to be a good app, I hope it does not give me any more heartaches!..

    It also gave me this:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\oobe\ISPSoftware\BTYahoo\BroadbandFromBT.exe detected: Dialer

    I hope this is a FP too. Please somebody comment on it if you can.
    Thanks

    I had BT Internet a few years back, before Broadband took off. What it is is the dial up to install the BT Yahoo software on your PC, hence why it picked it as a dialler, so technically it is a FP. But if it is not necessary then I'd let a-squared delete it.
