    Just wanted to alert other Microsoft Reader users: What I expected to be a routine scan using a-squared (emsisoft.com) found 3 instances of "Backdoor.Win32.sandrator.c" contained in 3 Microsoft Reader files:

    C:\Program Files\MicrosoftReader\ReaderTTSInstallENG.exe

    C:\Program Files\MicrosoftReader\ReaderTTSInstallFRA.exe

    C:\Program Files\MicrosoftReader\readerttsinstallger.exe

    Best thing to do is report that to a-squared (emsisoft.com) ASAP via the method they have.. :)

    That was a known false positive that was fixed one day later :).
