    Beware www.realityrift.com.......
    Matrix screensaver on its website has Download.Trojan in the mce.zip file!

    I got caught out after succumbing to my sons "Youre getting paranoid!" and putting caution to one side instead of listening to my own advice!
    Fortunately NAV picked it up and I was able to get rid before it downloaded any more files!

    Can anything be done about this website and its owner?

    Just want to warn other people! :mad:

    Confirmed as a false positive, the file doesn't even import any URLMON.DLL functions used by webdowloaders (URLDownloadToFileA , InternetOpenURLA) and is clean :)

    Ok so if scrnsaver is clean can anyone tell me how the Download.Trojan appeared on my system immediately after downloading the screensaver as a zip file, unzipping and opening the file, then NAV warning msg promptly pops up straightawayo_Oo_O?
