    Originally this posting was meant as a warning that The Cleaner has a FP on RefreshEm.
    But after two online scans it seems to be of a broader issue...

    First, what is RefreshEm?
    It is a free tool from Camtech2000 to repair the Windows Icon Cache.
    Site: http://camtech2000.com/Pages/Useful.html
    I have the tool for several years.

    Now to the FP's :

    The Cleaner (on-demand) told me that it was infected with SC-Keylog.
    In fact I got several warnings from The Cleaner:
    d:\refreshem\refrsh10.zip: refrsh10.exe SC-Keylog
    d:\refreshem\useful utilities.htm SC-Keylog
    d:\refreshem\refrsh10.exe SC-Keylog
    d:\pestpatrol\version 4\pestpatrol.htm SC-Keylog
    (As you see, two are on stored sites on my machine; one not related to RefreshEm).

    As I said, I have RefreshEm for several years on my system.
    I use it sometimes but not very often.

    Well, I decided to do two online scans: at Jotti's and at VirusTotal.
    In the next two screenshots you'll see that both UNA and Ikarus are giving a warning about refrsh10.exe

    Here is the screenie from Jotti:

    And here comes the screenie from VirusTotal.

    I'll try to inform Moosoft (The Cleaner) about it.
    And I'll try to inform Camtech2000 (Jerry Campbell) about it.
    I know nothing about UNA and Ikarus....
