    The following, in quarantine must be a false positive. It went into quarantine a while ago [16/01/2009 23:58:34], and i only noticed it was there today. The file is very old and nothing appeared in any scan until now.

    Filename - C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Nero 7 Premium Reloaded\Nero-7.10.1.0_eng_trial.exe

    Reason - Win32/Toolbar.AskSBar application

    No, it's actually an unwanted application (toolbar that installs into browsers). You can disable AMON or unwanted applications while installing Nero. I'd strongly recommend upgrading to v3 or v4 Release Candidate. V4 notifies about unwanted/unsafe applications by a yellow window and allows you to select a desired action.

    I've actually had a lot of trouble with v3 as you can see here, so I've stuck with v2.7.

    Now I know what the issue is I'll probably just dump Nero instead. It's becoming a really horribly bloated app that my old set-up is struggling with, and I'd prefer something leaner like imgburn.

    Thanks marcos
