    I just installed avant browser. I wanted to test it to see how well it blocked popup ads. I typed in "popup test" on yahoo search engine and found a lot of websites that gives a popup test. I click on a link. As soon as the web page opens. Kav stops a trojan. See screenshot. :rolleyes:

    Some popup generators are read as trojans. Have you ever been to a website and got hundreds of popups? KAV and a few others now recognize this as malware.

    Wonder if some basic code will make KAV popup with a trojan warning :p
    That's really weird if you ask me.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function openWindows(num) {
    for (i=0;i<num;i++) {
    window.open('about:blank','popup'+i,'width=200,height=200');
    }
    }
    </script>

    <body onload="openWindows(20);">

    It's a false positive, it will be corrected. :)

    F-Secure's AV (within F-Secure AV Client Security v6) does the exact same thing!

    Actually, FSAVCS uses 4 (or 5) AV engines! ;)
