    Bitdefender says that Spywareblaster has a virus, Trojan.Agent.AIZM and has automatically disabled the program. Is this a problem with Bitdefender or a problem with Spywareblaster?

    Thanks,

    Bob

    there is a better than average chance that it is a false positive in BD. You might try running an online scan at one of the other AV sites other than just relying on BD's results.
    here is one. http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

    When I woke up this morning, I found that BitDefender had completely disabled my SpywareBlaster!!! WTF?!?!? :eek:
    It didn't just stop it, it DELETED my SB.........wow.
    I got the same reason as everyone else: Trojan.Agent.AZIM
    Up until this morning - SB and Bit Def have been working just fine together.
    So did SB download a trojan when it updated, or did BD download a mis-informed virus update??
    I won't give up Bit Def but I'm REALLY going to miss SpyWareBlastr. :(

    Please, see here :)
    It seems that the latest BitDefender signature update detects one of SpywareBlaster's main files as a trojan. It's a false positive. Other AVs (namely AVG and Windows Live OneCare/Windows Defender) have been detecting SpywareBlaster's files.
