    I just downloaded a new program called Hardware Checker that is supposed to give you detailed info about your computer

    When I tried to run it, this is what I go…ESS didn’t do a thing! That is exactly why you need a 2nd wall of defense! And SAS is the best at doing this!

    But my question is, why didn't ESS catch it? Everything is updated

    Norton calls it clean. It might just be a false positive on the part of SAS. I have never downloaded a malicious file from Majorgeeks.

    100$ says they tell you its a clean file.

    Thank goodness SAS was there to stop it before it did nothing malicious:thumb:

    Wrong one. Send it to SAS instead.

    It seems to me a perfectly legit tool for getting information about installed hardware components. There's no sign of a rogue behavior. I'm sorry but ESET won't enter the race for detecting most files, including clean applications, corrupted or otherwise non-functional files.
