    I am starting a new thread. I have not found somethig similar to post.

    I have tried trojanhunter 4.5 and today it has detected that a language.dll file (in spysweeper folder) has a trojanspy.banker 879 in it!

    I have cleaned it and immediately spy sweeper stopped working. I have submitted tha file to Jotti and it has found nothing.

    Because I think this is strange and important I am asking for assistance.

    I have win xp SP2 (all updates), nod 32 and zone alarm.

    Hi spartak,
    Probably a false positive from Trojanhunter, because you scanned it at Jotti's and
    removing the file stopped Spy Sweeper from loading because its language file is missing. :doubt:
    Have you submitted the file to the developer of Trojanhunter for further examination?

    Let's hear what the experts have to say about it. ;)

    :oops: Magnus already responded. :thumb:

    You're welcome spartak. ;)
    Glad Magnus showed up in time to let you know that it's indeed
    a false positive, but fixed with the LiveUpdate. :thumb:
