    PE download page = http://www.diamondcs.com.au/portexplorer/index.php?page=download
    states that file size is 1,246 KB. Name of downloaded file = pedemosetup.exe. File size = 43.9 KB. Clicking on it produces the error message shown in image.
    Anybody have any ideas why the file size is different and/or the reason for the error message? o_O

    Hello figtrees and welcome
    which image?

    The PE program install file is definitely the size from the page, the 43 kb i don't know, most certainly is not the download nor the port explorer exe file after install.

    Please download again from the site and install again. Might be best to get rid of the one you have if you tried to install it.

    Just download again. If you have a bad connection (it seems so) then perhaps you could use a download manager :) Of course you would need to download that.. unless you have a magazine CD with one on it

    Thank you both for your replies. New download works fine. I saved the previous faulty 43 KB download in a Ghost image on the 2nd HD in case anybody wants to examine it and the 88 byte ADS that came with it. As to the image, it was displayed in the post yesterday (3/17), so that's yet another of life's little mysteries. Credit where credit is due: the demo of TDS-3 detected the ADS after changing the default for ADS detection from no to yes, 64 bytes or more.

    Hmm. :doubt: Well, before I email it to him, I think I better ask him if he's willing to receive it, and if so, at what address. Otherwise, the virus detector might delete it? o_O

    DCS/Gavin is always interested in possible malware, so don't hesitate to email. The address is mentioned in Jooske's last post ;)

    regards.

    Yes please do submit, if possible zip the stuff so they don't get damaged in the mail.
    If there are nasties involved somehow (maybe with your downloading) Gavin will find them for you.
    Good that you are careful with your samples, as it is most certainly not a good idea to send them just to anybody, but Gavin is not anybody, he's the trojans engineer at DCS.
