    Hi guys.

    Just started using NOD32 and it seems good, but, I keep getting warned by Nod32/AMON that my Macromedia products, especially Flash, is a virus ( the flash.exe, director.exe etc. ).

    It says probable unknown WIN32 virus, and it can not access the file.

    AMON seems to be responding to any file associated with Flash. Only folders I open with flash associated ( .swf .fla ) files seems to make it pop-up. But this is random, not same folders every time. More like every 2nd or 3rd time I open that folder (?). And also when I open Flash, also at random.

    I tried to use Exclude to overcome it, both file and folder option, but it still pops up. Getting quite annoying. Hope this makes sense. Any help would be great.

    tia.

    Hello,
    You don't have the latest version.
    Please download the trial or commercial version again from www.nod32.com to obtain 2.000.9 version.
    Then, update your databases because the latest is 1.802 and the archive support is 1.016 1091

    I am having the same problem that is being reported here (ie, unknown virus) and I have the latest version of the trial software. It would appear that this is an ongoing problem. Does anyone know how to get around this problem. I currently have up to date Norton 2004 AV loaded and it is working fine and does not report the macromedia as having viruses

    Can you copy the copy the virus log from the NOD system tray and post it here?
    Right click the virus message and copy.
    I have the flash viewer on my computer with no false alarms.

    Well, my NOD32 doesn't report anything on any of Macromedia files, perhaps you're using a different version. Try turning off AMON or at least the use of heuristics in AMON setup for the time necessary to attach those files to an email and send them to samples@eset.com for analysis. If it is actually a false positive, Eset will remedy it in as short time as possible.
