F@H Trojan - false detect?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My weekly antivirus scan took place last night, and this was found:



I'm not worried, as I haven't used this version since before my last re-install of Vista.

Is this a false detect?

Scan it with other software and see what they say.

(Spybot search and destroy for example)

I did a quick search on Google, and found a lot of similar "detects" with Comodo for installer programs. It's probably Comodo being a little too conservative on the behavior scanner. I deleted the files as I don't use them.

If you downloaded it from the official fah website then the chances are it's a false positive.

Probably because it detects that fah is set to run at startup, and is a service (or something...)
