    Default Is Optimum Installer A False Positive?

    Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
    Google Chrome Version 23.0.1271.97
    Spybot S&D Version 1.6.2.46 - Date of last update, 12/14/2012
    'Optimum Installer' came up with a Scan Result

    Log can be seen here:

    I saw in the Log that 'Optimum Installer' was found in the buttons of the Google Toolbar for IE. I deleted Optimum Installer following these instructions:

    I then uninstalled the Google Toolbar for IE. Could I have done any harm if 'Optimum Installer' was a False Positive? Thank you.

    We will investigate this. According to your log file Spybot deleted a XML file belonging to the Google Toolbar. I do not expect this to cause any harm, especially not after you fully uninstalled the toolbar.

    I can confirm that this is a false positive, it will be fixed with the next detection update scheduled for Wednesday 2012-12-19.
