    I downloaded some ROM editing tools from filetrip, here, and when I run the program, it tries to install Strongvault Online Backup, which I know is a virus. Last time it got installed on my computer, it made my computer not turn on and I had to use my warranty to fix this.

    Are these programs supposed to be there? I really hope not. Also, anyway to stop the install from attempting to install permanently (I can cancel the install and still use the real program).

    Are you sure you're choosing "manual download" from filetrip?

    I give up. I started the program to take the screenshot, and it started, but I had a brain fart and forgot how to take a screencap. Then, when I remembered how to do it, the real program started immediately, and I didn't change anything. So all I have is a shot of the files from the manual download.

    For what it is worth I just checked it out and it worked fine. I have seen pokemon hacking tools laced with things in the past though so by all means report something if it turns out to be the case.

    Can never be to careful with files you download now days, I usually run mine in sandboxie to test them.
