    Hello.
    Strange thing today.. NOD32 3.0.650 database 3115 detected
    Frostwire as a trojan variant although Frostwire is 100% clean. Once installed it only picked up the Frostwire.exe as being infected, buti m sure its a false positive. NOD32 didnt pick it up as a Trojan a few weeks ago when i scanned ?


    Code:
    http://www.frostwire.com/
    Absolutely NO Spyware or Adware

    Hmmm....same Nod build and sig version and when scanning FrostWire 4.13.5, nothing is found.

    Edit:
    o_O Duh....I didn't have Potentially unwanted applications checked the first time, so it does flag it as an AdInstaller.

    Hmmmm, well having thought about it during install it does ask if you want the ask toolbar ( i say no) maybe thats it. !! If so surely ccleaner and most other apps which try to install google toolbar would get flagged to eh ?
    But dont seem to.
    Well done then NOD .Well spotted. :thumb:
