    Today I upgraded my Counterspy to version 1.5.81. During the download and install BD alerted that there was a suspicious file, and blocked it. After the install I ran a scan with BD, and it identified two suspicious files. I hope that I can post the results.
    I think these are FP and have reported them to the BD Support.

    its likely a FP due to HIVE/heuristics, u could try scanning the files at jotti's malware scanner and/or submitting them to bitdefender for analysis.

    I think you are correct, and the entries have been submitted to BD.
    I have also scanned with a couple of online scanners incl KAV. I also scanned with Ewido.

    It is clearly a problem between CS and BD, and I suspect BD will fix it soon. If I recall correctly, the same type of things happened at another major change in CS. I guess that there is bound to be some such conflicts between the various malware protection programs.
    On Castle Cops one post said the Norton has a similar problem with this update of CS.

    Thanks for the reply.
