    Ewido just found a trace of backdoor.small in my downloads folder in the file Remove WGA.exe. I think this is probably a false positive. But in the meantime I have quarantined him.

    Funny, Windows Defender didn't find him. :) But neither did Superantispyware.

    Yes, I am using paid version and it updates automatically. I have sent the Remove WGA.exe file via the link to your labs.
