    hello, i need help here. after scanning my system using ewido final trial, i got a report saying that 'scardsvr.exe' which is located in 'WINDOWS/System32/' folder is a malware with 'High' rating threat. i dont know if this was a false positve or not since my so-so antivirus didnt recognize it as a threat. so please people at ewido help me abt this. please confirm this. thanks.

    No big deal murlay ;)

    Also....it doesn't appear to be a False positive according to Jotti's malware scan results.

    Hello murlay,

    I'm not sure I'm qualified to have an answer concerning that. However....I was doing a little Google searching about that file and came across this 2 month old thread on another forum where an individual had the same type inquiry. Mind you it does have it's similarities to your problem but there didn't seem to be any substance in regards to the responses :doubt:

    The free tool to remove the offending malware is avalible free at the NOD32 website and the signatures will be avalible in an update if they are not already. Kaspersky releses nothing but beta software and is a total system hog. Stick with NOD32 your safer.

    they release so many betas because they are trying to make the next version of there product the very definition of perfection after every beta they fix the bugs reported then put out another, the other AVs teams are lazy in comparison

    NOD32 safer then kaspersky... i almost cried there (of laughing)... the guy above me knows what's going on... kaspersky's next final release is going to be awesome

    A system hog? Uhh no.

    The answer is simple. Because there is NO PROGRAM out there which has 100% detection and protection.

    There is always a threat which will not be detected ...
