    Hi everyone,

    First ever post here (first ever problem with Eset!) so am hoping for some suggestions/advice on this one please:

    I downloaded and installed some trial software - IconLover 5.15 from
    -aha-soft . com / iconlover-

    anyway, right at the end of installation I got a pop up red warning message from Eset saying:

    "Scanner">Real-time file system protection
    "Object">file<
    "Name">C:\Program Files (x86)\IconLover\uninstall.exe
    "Threat">probably a variant of Win32/Hupigon trojan
    "Action">cleaned by deleting - quarantined

    Now I don't think the program is "dodgy" and I had intended just to try it out then either uninstall or buy, but either way now I don't have the uninstall option...any ideas please? Much appreciated.

    Using Eset Smart Security 4.2.58.3 on a Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    After the next update (5346), restore the file from quarantine as it will no longer be detected.
