winMX exe file virus
« on: February 21, 2012, 12:02:21 pm »
I've tried to install the WinMX 3.53 exe a few times on my Lenovo netbook. It's literally the same file that I have installed previously, but this time it gets to the end of the installation process and AVG tells me there is a potential virus threat with the Uninstaller.exe file. I'm not sure if it's just AVG being a bit overprotective, as I have installed from this file before, but I had to reinstall my operating system as it was knocked down with a virus, so that has me worried.

Has anyone else had a similar installation problem?

Thanks.

Thanks for your replies. I'm using the installer from this website (winmxworld.com) - the community patch as it's called.

in the virus scanners settings disable heuristics as many times they cause many false positives (look in the help file for how if you dont know)... then do a full scan of your system to check for anything else... then try again and tell us how it went...

We originally had problems with avast and avg when I first created the installers, it was solved by me sending the packed and unpacked containing contents to both companies with our activation date, fortunately both compainies fixed before we shipped, very kind of them :-)

I advise if you are concerned you email them the file and tell them the problems you are having. They usually respond very fast and fix problems.

The reason why the installer and uninstaller in this case gets flagged is I used a autoit script to delete any previous versions of old installers including our older versions and because autoit tends to be used by people with less than good coding skills, but can quite quickly create backdoor servers or trogens as you will all know them that sometimes AntiVirus companies just flag autoit scripts just because they detected autoit scripts....... Not useful.

So yeah, they should be perfectly clean, ill check md5's just incase but I suspect its just a false positive. Please let me know if you hear anything back from AVG.
