    I am trialing NOD32. Every time that I install NOD, it flags a file called wrsssdk.exe from Webroot's Spy Sweeper program as a baddie of some sort. Can I ASSume that this is a false positive? There are two reasons for me to think so: number 1. I trust Webroot, and number 2. Neither my regular AV, nor any of the other AV that I am trialing, nor AdAware, nor Spybot are flagging this file.

    Thank you,
    Acadia

    Thanks, Ronjor. Maybe NOD did not bother to fix this in the Trial version? (And yes, I did update the NOD signatures)

    It only happens when I install the trial NOD, not at any other time.

    Acadia, are you sure you are actually using the latest version 1.1332? I could't find any file wrsssdk.exe submitted via ThreatSense and still flagged as suspicious. It makes no difference whether you are a trial or paying user.
     

  7. I had the same thing but It got fixed.

    Are you sure you're not trying to run an old NOD32 installer? If I remember right, the installers were updated not so long ago.

    Ok, folks, thanks for the replies. If the installer or version was changed within the past 2-3 weeks, then yes, I might be using something old. If I purchase NOD I need to uninstall the trial anyway. Thanks.

    It doesn't matter whether you installed NOD32 2 weeks or months ago, if you have the latest update installed you shouldn't get any warning from NOD32 on that file.

    Like I said, it only flashes that warning when I install NOD, not at any other time. I am constantly removing NOD and reinstalling it since I am also trialing other AV.

    If I'm not mistaken, their installers gets updated once in a while, so maybe you should try and download the trial again.
    It could very well fix the issue you are experiencing ;)

    then don't worry about it - in 30 days when the trial EXPIRES, you'll not be able to see the problem any more!

    Yup, that's basically the attitude that I adopted. I just want to make sure that it was indeed a false positive and that question has been answered. Thanks. (to everyone)
