    Disable BD and then upload the file flag as sality to virustotal, if it is infected, I recomend you use AVG antispyware to scan, if not satisfied, you'd better format C and rescan all other disk. If it is FP, just wait for the update

    If i remember, Sality is a PE file infector. So don't wonder if you see the same detection across random EXE files.

    the files it flagged as virus are not virus or malware.Bitdefender simply flagging every exe files as that malware.i use them daily for example,
    free download manager,jet audio(now im not able to play media files),winiso,even procx which is there in screenshot.
    thanks to fd-isr everything's back to normal.
    and tell me where the hell that virus is running see screenshot

    this forum is biased!
    it looks like the realtime is simply set to block the threat,

    but you need to do a full deep system scan to remove the threat.

    and you could also use drwebs cure it (link in sig) to also check that the threat has been completely removed.

    Did you upload any of the files flagged as infected to VirusTotal?
    That would have possibly verified whether you were infected or maybe a false positive.

    Hello sach1000rt

    When you are in the BitDefender Security Center screen press on settings,antivirus,press on the shield tab and click on custom, now expand scan accessed files you can enable the option scan user defined extensions. There isn't an option for only scanning changed files. You can only select scan all files or only program files. The strange thing is that BitDefender never flagged soundman.exe on my computer. If you want to report false positivs the quickest way is uploading them to the BitDefender forum. In this section :
    http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showforum=2 or by sending them via mail you will find the address also here.
