    I downloaded this anti-keylogger which was flagged by Kaspersky. AntiVir also added it after I sent a sample. But ESS, which I am trying again, did not flag it after I sent it in. Neither did Norton nor Avast. And it's listed as safe at SiteAdvisor. Link to the download is at the bottom of this page:

    As far as I know firelion is a valid anti logger,perhaps that link is infected.You can try sending samples to virustotal see if any others detect it.

    Kaspersky, Avira, and 4 others detect it. Kaspersky said it was not a false positive. How can I get Eset to analyze it? I sent it to samples@eset.com in a password protected zip file a couple weeks ago, with no detection yet. Norton and Avast also didn't add it, so I'm wondering if there is disagreement.

    perhaps the sample got lost in the mix at eset maybe send them another,the rest falls on there lap.AS far as kaspersky, and avira to add it I would guess there good reason to do so maybe the others are napping a bit

    Thanks, I will re-send. I am using ESS because it runs smoothly and has a good record, and maybe they will still add it.

    It seems that it's packer detection.

    i tried kaspersky for a month before coming back to nod 4 of my games background downloaders where wrongly flagged and despite money threads on the games forums they wouldn't change it. then the bsod's started happening, threads removed from forums no response.
    in short, i found anyway, kaspersky will never admit they got something wrong.
    get it checked but i would imaged it's harmless.
    install the free scan only malware bytes program which puts a right click scan together with nods as a very good second checker.

    The site the-best-soft.com is trying to sell you Kaspersky . They advertise you their products and I they use these utilities to test KAV . Based on the description from McAfee (not that it is always full) , it should be non-malicious.
