    Default Anyone Else Got This When Trying To Install NoVirusThanks Anti-Rootkit Program

    When trying to install, NoVirusThanks Anti-Rootkit Program, I received a message from SpyBot, that declared ARK was infected with this: Trojan.Generic.7871484 . :(

    I went and tried do an internet search for this trojan, and couldn't turn up much on it. So, I've not installed this program yet. I'm not sure if this is a False Positive, or an actual trojan, as I've never received any kind of warning from my security software before about NoVirusThanks' programs,, and I've installed quite a few of them. :(

    I'd greatly appreciate any help with this.

    Thanks a million!!

    Hello BC2BSafe,

    Sorry for the delay during the holidays, I will flag a detective to take a look at the issue as a possible false positive.

    Meanwhile, you appear to have posted here: http://malwaretips.com/threads/appar...rootkit.40138/

    A person named "Argus" has requested the removal of Spybot as an "unwanted program"

    Spybot is not an unwanted program or a rogue so the advice is unwarranted. Feel free to link him to this thread.

    Best regards.

    Thank you!!

    I do realize that SpyBot is not an unwanted program. Argus is just trying to help me find out if malware is actually on my system. They have a couple of tools that they use in their diagnosis, and I believe that they did not want anything possibly conflicting with those tools.

    I will not stop using SpyBot, as it is an awesome program. I just will not have it installed while they are attempting to help me, and I am trying my best to follow their instructions, while in this process.
