    I've had a few bad run-ins with some freeware today. Most of it is off my hard drive, but ESET won't shut up.

    Apparently the source of the threat is some URL. Here it is exactly: -http://download.mybrowserbar.com/vkits/dlv1/937811/youtubedownloaderToolbar.msi-

    It includes the freeware I used temporarily. It's Youtube Downloader. But I uninstalled it, and the threat source is a URL. Am I missing something? If it's a URL and not on my hard drive, how to I get rid of it?

    I ran a scan already, and nothing appears to be endangered. But this alert keeps popping up and ESET continues to quarantine it (I've got well over 300 of these alerts accrued right now).

    So...how to I get ESET to calm down and remove the threat if there is one?

    I'm aware I can shut off notifications, but the fat that it's so persistent makes that a less preferable option to me.

    I've deleted that file, but I'm still getting threat reports out the wazoo.

    The exe file in the temp folder looks like an adware downloader. Please submit it to ESET as per the instructions here.
