    I would not be surprised if that becomes a non-event once Vista rolls out to the public early 2007.

    @diverdan: Just received this from AVG:
    Unfortunately, the previous virus database might have detected the virus (Trojan Horse) on some legitimate applications. We
    can confirm that it was a false alarm. We have immediately released the new virus update that removes the false positive on this application. AVG with newest update doesn't detect the file as a virus.
    @noel-pr7: are you using "schedules" and "Microsoft" in the same sentence? The whole WSC details are under a NDA anyway, so I won't say anything further on the topic

    Regarding Windows 95, 1.4 failed since Borland removed support for Windows 95 from its Developer Studio. I recently gave up on hoping they would adjust, and patched everything myself (the reason they removed support was really really silly: see the toolbar with the gradient on the white/blacklist window of the new TeaTimer? Just for the possibility of using this, they gave up 95 compatibility... we were able to work around that though, without even giving up the gradients on 98 and newer). And I think I tested the new TeaTimer myself on various Win95 virtual machines we have here to make sure all the patching works. Some people may laugh at making stuff backwards compatible to operating systems older than 10 years, but recently I actually even worked towards ReactOS and Wine compatibility as well.

    I too have AVG Antivirus 7.5 Free Edition installed on my WinXP SP2 computer and have no problems with the sbsdtools15beta.exe file. maybe diverdan downloaded the file from a bad web site. try getting it from the Spybot web site instead of a mirror site.

    PepiMK, I did try out Teatimer 1.5 on an old Win95 SR2 computer at my next-door neighbor's house and it works.

    what version of AVG Pro were you using, streetwolf?

    I use AVG Free 7.5 and it didn't find anything wrong with it. AND I have the latest virus definition files for AVG Free installed. weird

    I even installed AVG anti-spyware free edition (latest version & latest build) and it too found nothing wrong with the sbsdtools15beta.exe file.

    note to diverdan and streetwolf: try downloading the sbsdtools15beta.exe file using Firefox or Seamonkey web browser instead of IE. do not use any third party download managers to get the file.

    I have the 7.5 Free edition, which updates daily, so it had the latest files onboard at that time.

    Hi all,

    Randy ( rdsok ) Moderator from the AVG Free forum here...

    I'd thought I'd clarify some issues concerning the AVG Pro detection that was mentioned. AVG Pro AntiVirus also detects adware and other potentially unwanted programs... AVG Free only detects standard ( if there is such a term today ) virus's, trojans and worms but not the others that Pro can detect. You should also note that Pro detected ( falsely in this case ) this as a Potentially Unwanted Program... not as a virus and there is a big difference as many here already know.

    This is an important distinction that users really need to pay attention to with any protection program or they may be getting rid of a utility that they knowingly download and use for good reasons... a lot of good utils are detected by AV and AS programs just to alert the user to their presence and not to indicate that the program is malware of some sort. Commonly detected programs include network scanners, password retrieval utils and many others as well. So the point is... pay attention to what your software is really telling you about the items it is detecting and don't just blindly delete everything listed or you may loose something you don't want lost.

    PS... just for good measure... I've tested with the AVG Free 7.1x and 7.5x as well as AVG Pro 7.5 versions against this and it still comes up as clean..
