    Ran into strange problems trying to download the Blacklight app (fsbl.exe) from F-Secure's web site: ftp://ftp.f-secure.com/anti-virus/tools/fsbl.exe.
    I'm running NOD32 v2.7 (3643), Online Armor and CounterSpy.

    When I use the Save File function in Firefox (FF), the download appears to be successful, but the downloaded file is only a little over 300KB of the true 1.1MB. No popup from AMON. FF set to allow popups. Same result on several tries. With download manager (DownloadThenAll!), AMON pops up a warning display and the downloads stops. The Threat log shows fsbl.exe as "a variant of Win32/Adware.Antivirus2008 application quarantined - deleted". The quarantined file was submitted for analysis. The strange thing is that when I download the file using IE7, no problems, no AMON alert. Why false positive? in FF but not IE?

    Thanks,
    Winston

    No problem here. Do you use a download manager? Does installing ESET NOD32 Antivirus (v3) or v4 beta make a difference?

    use FireFox own download manager
    do not use DownloadThenAll!
    then tell us the result
