    Hi

    A number of comments about SafeOnline rendering false positives, King Of rapture to name on poster, myself as another.

    Today downloaded Sumatra PDFReader and guess what its flagged as malware. Checked the exe on line and NONE of the other respectable names flags Sumatra.

    ps even the portable Applications version is flagged as malware.

    My personal opinion is that SafeOnline appears to be over zealous and is reducing its credibility.

    Terry

    ps using version 3.0.5.220 Facebook on Win7 64 bit.

    And yes I know one is supposed to report false positives, but it gets wearing after a bit.

    This false positive has already been fixed several hours ago. I've closed this thread as per policy.
