    I downloaded Rodolph's Famicom Mini SAVE Convertor from his site, when I extract it AVG8 Free comes up with it being a threat "Virus found VBS/Agent"

    Does anyone else have this issue? I'm running WinXP Pro SP3 all up do date, its a first and wonder if its just a bad dectection by AVG just as Bioshock on the PC was when it released [​IMG]

    A lot of conversion utilities and patchers/keygens seem to come up as false positives, due to the way that the actual applications function. I'm not sure on this specific one, but Rudolph doesn't strike me as an individual that would release such a thing. Check to make sure you are getting it direct.

    that is completly crazy to think rudolph would purposly release a virus into the scene. it is a mistake and a false positive with your choice of anti-virus software.

    Just a update, dunno whats up, but I accidently opened it when trying to view the code, the next day AVG 8 free found the vbs/agent in my restore point files of XP, I didn't create a restore point nor had I shutdown in between the time the file was opened and AVG 8 ran. This still might be a false positive but just a warning to others.

    the restore folder is updated when things change or are altered in a way which is different that was is databased already. you don't need to make a restore point to have it get updated in the background. and stop worrying, just email rudolph and ask him whats up. he is a cool guy he will help you figure it out.
