    I got it from the link in the thread for playing N64 games on the DS. But when I went to use Win2DS.exe, my free AVG virus protection told me it was malware and I should quarantine it. Was it being overly cautious, or was I right not to go through with running the program? And if that's the case, where can I get it without danger of a virus?

    It again says it's malware. Must be my antivirus thing being too protective... so are you sure it's safe for me to run the file you linked me to?

    Thanks, btw

    Could be a false positive, but I have no idea how this program works so I can't really help you.

    Yeah, I guess it must be a false positive. Considering that the program lets you run your Windows through your DS, it must find that dangerous. I think I'll go ahead and run it *crosses fingers*

    AVG sucks.
    It's horribly coded, conflicts with everything, has poor detection which it 'makes up' for by being overly sensitive.

    Get Avira or Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials.
