    So I got Borderlands off a friend and one of the cracks files is a .dll called 'reloaded.dll'
    Curious to see if it's a virus, I cracked it open with Notepad. This is the result:

    Thanks to everyone.
    The results say that according to CP Secure, Quick Heal & Virus Buster all say that it's a Trojan. All the rest are cool with it.

    And for the record, 8BITWALUGI's A MANS NAME! AND I'M A MAN!.

    Had to throw that in!

    Your best bet to look into a DLL is a decompiler, as a DLL is most often a collection of precompiled programming functions made to be portable. It's a way to define a custom function once and then include it for use in multiple different programs (or provide it's use to the entire OS, if it's registered as a system DLL).

    Lots of cracks are detected by antivirus programs even if they don't do anything malicious simply because of how they operate, they modify other programs (the game to be cracked) and bypass security checks.

    i'm guessing you're using the reloaded release. it *shouldn't* be all that dangerous as reloaded is a rather big group and wouldn't continue to release games with the popularity they get. its probably just one of their dodgy ways of bypassing the games protection.

    Usually, reloaded cracks have a reloaded.dll as some kind of hooking reference or something that can skip the checks in the normal EXE. KEEP THAT IN THE SAME DIR AS THE CRACKED EXE
