    Just checked and I'm getting the same result, I reckon you can bet your money it's a false reading from ewido, or AVG Antispyware as it's now called. I've been using ewido since it came out and am seriously thinking of dumping it as it has a false positive rate way to high for my liking.

    After doing a full scan with AVG Antispyware it's also saying the same thing about the same file in Port Explorer, Port Explorer\unins000.exe, which is another DCS product. I don't know what is worse a security program that keeps missing stuff or one that keeps giving false positives.

    Hi, strangequark

    If You are getting lots of FP's you can always try unchecking heuristic analysis, Scan>Setttings>heuristic analysis to see if it help.

    Take Care,

    This thread looks as if it be should be over in the ewido anti-spyware forum.

    Hi, quest
    I must admit I hadn't done that so will give it a go. I bought ewido and boclean when TDS went down, at this stage I think boclean is the winner out of the two so will probably just use ewido free version for an on demand scanner when my [just renewed] licence runs out.
