    False Positive:
    Download: ~Link to possible malware removed.~


    This is a P2P program. ESET ONLY detects this when i try to download it, after that he doesn't detect the file in my computer.

    Kaspersky/Symantec/Avira, etc removed this false positive, but eset ....

    Hello Di0g08,

    It's being flagged heuristically as a "Potentially unwanted application". If you do want it you need only disable the parameter mentioned in that article and it should no longer be stopped.

    The file has no sign of a trusted application. I'd strongly suggest the author either to cease using protectors or make the application trusted. If you're not the author, you must have opted for detection of potentially unwanted applications during or after installation.
