    Hello.
    I have sent many reports about this problem to Eset but without any success.AnVir Task Manager is a very popular program and you should fix this issue as soon as possible.
    False alarm: Probably Win32/Genetik trojan
    You can download and check this program from the authors site
    ht tp://www.anvir.com/taskmanager/
    Thank you.

    Have you sent it to samples@eset.sk and told them the specific content about it?(eg the source of the software, including the name of the developer, the name and version application and the address of the site from which the file was downloaded)

    Are you sure? I wonder then why no one has reported it until now. We'll look into it.
