    Hey,
    I was downloading the new version of NDSTokyoTrim and my virus software (Avast) said it had a Trojan in it before it had finished downloading (maybe just AS it finished, I dunno). Can anyone confirm whether or not it is safe to use or not.

    I'm about to go to bed and couldn't find any e-mail address on the official site, so I thought a post here would spread the word (that is, if the "word" indeed needs to be spread.

    Thanks and stuff.

    I would guess it's a false positive. I doubt the dude would put a virus in his file.

    I was here... before...
    Yes it is a false positive like every time you've got a compressed file ... I trust Brian also.

    I will update my post in a few minuts with a complete scan but i bet :

    - it was done previously by a smart guy ;-)

    - it is related to UPX compression

    Basically it is a false positive related to Heuristic: Suspicious File With Covert Attributes

    False positives do occur with some individually coded programs, I think the CycloEvo cheat program also showed up some false positives on some virus scanning programs, nothing to be too worried about.

    It's probably related to something left by UPX (the compression he used)

    Anyone got a mirror of version 2.01 as I over wrote it with 2.10 and now can't use it?
