    I downloaded the Wolfenstein pack a few months ago and I updated and ran Superantispyware today. It found a trojan and I waited to see what file was found to be infected. To my surprise it was the sequel to Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny which was included in the pack. Here is a pic of it. Can you guys fix this FPo_O

    Did you report the FP using the built-in function?

    Give them a little time. I had a FP on a game I had for a long time and they fixed it after being persistent. If you don't hear from them in a day or two, shoot them an email explaining everything with the file name.

    If the file is under 10MB, you can remove it from quarantine and upload it to VirusTotal just to be sure. Otherwise wait for their reply.

    Don't forget you can hold Alt + print screen to only capture the current window for a pic ;).

    That's all we can do. You can check hashes of that file if you know of someone with that game installed (same version and patch level)
    Or use something like FastStone Capture :)

    No need to apologize. I do like your Firefox theme :thumb:.

    Me too. What theme is that? Looks like a streamlined IE7.
    BTW, I think it's probably a good idea to report the FP first at the SAS forum, if you haven't already. Only polite.

    We have already handled it - in the future, please don't do the "broadcast" submissions on every forum as it causes lots of extra work to chase them all down - if you have done the report in our product, that's all you need to do, we handle everything received immediately.
