    This conflict just showed up on my wife's PC.

    Funny thing is, I unsinstalled cyberhawk months ago. Been using antivir for months. But this week, the scans have been detecting cyberhawk as a trojan even though I don't have it installed?

    1. Could antivir be picking up a remanant of cyberhawk that might not have fully installed?

    2. Why would antivir detect cyberhawk as a trojan?

    Can someone much more knowledgeable than myself please explain?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hard to tell unless you provide the full path of the detected file.

    A faulty detection routine on Avira's part, or your copy of Cyberhawk isn't what you think it is.

    avira already has a very good detection rate, so i would put the huristics down to medium or low if i were you.
