    [UPDATED]winpwn 0.99.2.18 trojan-a mystery

    BitDefender antivirus has just detected "Trojan.Generic.301388" in file "c:\program files\winpwn\uninstall winpwn.exe". What happened? I know BitDefender is one of the best, but may it be mistaken? The file doesn't exist.
    What do YOU think?

    [UPDATE] It exists, but in "C:\Program Files\cmw\winpwn". Strange. It isn't infected. Why?? Shoot, it may be deleted by BitDefender.
    [UPDATE 2] It hasn't been deleted. But it doesn't exist. WTF??

    because I want to know if Windows really is that unstable. And NO. No new antivirus. I paid 60 DOLLARS FOR IT AND I MUST KNOW WHY IT DOES THIS. Otherwise it's ok (detecting etc.)

    why not just scrap that version and use the latest? its a no brainer I believe this was a common thing with that build and a new one was swiftly released

    Windows isn't that bad buddy...

    And a trojan could be many things, a trojan could be a type of file that a application uses to link two parts of the program. Or it could be a virus. False positive possibly?

    Wow, you PAY for AntiVirus? Amazing. I'm on Windows Vista (Both Computers, Mac & HP) and I use AVG Free 8 and have never been infected (Ever since Vista anyway) I'm never going back to XP. The only reason I even HAVE AntiVirus is to make Windows stop nagging me to get an AntiVirus software.

    Your AntiVirus program is crap anyway, just like Norton.

    Get NOD32 or AVG Free. NOD32 is shareware, costs I think 30 - 45 bucks and is one of the best out there.
