    I guess it is a false positive from your Panda.
    I have that file for quite a long time ;) and sofar nothing wrong with it.
    I also just let Jotti's online scan check it: clean ;)

    You might like to check the MD5 checksum of the file.
    Mine is:

    If you have the same MD5, may I ask you please to inform the Panda corporation that it is false positive?
    Thanks !

    Cheers, Jan.

    Hi Mário,

    Nothing wrong with your English :)
    We are coming from all over the world. I myself from The Netherlands, and I certainly do know that my English is far from good!

    First: I am not very familiar with Panda, so I do not know if that file was indeed deleted or maybe put in some quarantine.
    Of course if the file is deleted, you cannot check its MD5 checksum.

    What I would advice:
    - tell us your operating system (Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, etc.) and language version.
    - tell us which Panda version gave you that warning.
    - tell us whether you have the trial version of TDS-3 or the licenced version.

    I will email Gavin about your question and this thread, so he might have a look at it.
    Maybe he wants your email-address, but don't post it here in public.
    If you yourself wants to contact Gavin, send an email to:

    Maybe you need to uninstall and re-install TDS-3, but let us wait for the answer from Gavin.

    Regards, Jan.

    Definitely a false alarm, either their signature it too "loose" causing the false alarm, OR maybe there is partly a heuristic detection going on (dcsres.exe changes the hosts file in a GOOD way, not a bad way)

    You should report this to them so they can fix it soon

    KAV 5.0.372 with latest databases.

    dcsres.exe = is a Trojan Trojan.Win32.Qhost.cq

    So there's more than just Panda with FP.

    Just FYI.

    They're rather late with that, since the file exists at least for five years. :cool:
    So can you please be so kind as to tell KAV it's not a baddy at all but protection for baddies?

    I remember many years ago i installed a trial scanner which detected the whole database of another scanner as malware, without any warning and had removed it completely, again without any warning. So you can imagine which software was uninstalled fast!

    I have just installed KAV Personal Trial version 5.

    It picked up one Trojan which was dcsres.exe or Trojaan.Win32.Qhost.cq in my C:/Programme/Protection folder which I forgot (I blame my age and medication that makes me forgetful early morning) that this is my TDS-3 Licenced Edition folder. I have deleted this "virus" as KAV said it was necessary to do so.

    Having not used KAV before and I am doing so on trial for 2 days then I will move onto NOD32 on trial. I want to see for myself out of the two which I prefere before I wipe my hard drives and re-install windows next week.

    Back to the so called infection it is in the backup of KAV so whether I can reinstall the file I do not know; it is not in quarantine just backup.

    Why has KAV picked this up as a Trojan seeing as though this appears to be an old post?

    Will I have to reinstall TDS-3 now?

    I have had the same false positive identification with Panda Titanium 2005 finding Trj/Qhost.BM in c:\program files\tds3\dcsres.exe and have e-mailed Panda via their program.

    From past experience replies are very late assuming one gets a reply at all!

    No, because you can restore the file from "View Backup" in the main Kaspersky window. :)

    For those of you who had that warning from KAV, may I ask (just for my understanding) which definitions were used?
    I mean: the "normal" ones, or the extended ones, etc.
    And on which Windows version (ME-98-NT-2000-XP etc)?

    Thanks !
    Regards, Jan.
