    Much appreciated, mr. Costa. Kudos!

    Are there any issues to be expected if I change/update download locations (if needed) in the links.ini file myself?

    SARDU, when click button for download, check online if exists a new version of links.ini. If exists replaces old version. The check is based on Version (read Data)
    Ex: Version=2011020417,00 (YYYYMMDDHH,MM)

    I don't have a team....then if one link is outdated and anyone warns me for email i'm happy :D.

    Sorry for my bad english...do you translate Kudoso_O

    Thanks, I'm glad someone appreciates my work :D

    I suppose they must be false positives, but why do so many scanners flag the SARDU_1 file as malware? It makes me nervous to try the product -- is there no way you can avoid this?

    Thanks.

    Atm VirusTotal.com (1/43) and VirScan.org (1/37) show only 1 flag, by VBA32;

    As only VBA32 marks it as malware, only 1 FP imo.
    Why not contact VirusBlokada/VBA and send the file to their support; support-en (at) anti-virus.by?

    I believe if you have Virustotal scan the SARDU_1 file (not the .exe) you'll find that between a quarter and a third flag it.

    SARDU_1 is a collection of files

    setup.ex_ (pyronsetup) is used for install Windows Xp ~ Removed VirusTotal URL as per Policy ~
    setup_dbg.ex_ (pyronsetup) is used for install Windows Xp ~ Removed VirusTotal URL ~ or see here...only false positive :(

    other discussion for these files here and here

    If anyone think that i make virus (I would be crazy with my name and surname) i can remove the install of Windows XP and SuperGrubDisk ~ Removed VirusTotal URL ~ :'(

    Thanks for your response, SARDU. People all speak well of your program, so I was sure that had to be the explanation.

    Regards.

    Oh! please don't take it like that mate. We're just trying to point out why is it that this specific file gets flagged by so many vendors. Most likely this is a FP as we all know you are not coding any malware. This is a community, so we all can work together to get this resolved by reporting it to all the vendors. We just need you to give us some sort of argument as to why this is happening, so we can prove them wrong. ;)

    I'm not talking about you but...I struggle with these accusations since 2009
    Now, to me, it's important to understand if in SARDU all works fine, what can I add or change.
    I'm a self made...
    Thanks for advices
