OOOOOPS
« on: July 26, 2017, 05:02:18 AM »
Been downloading and installing AND using Tweaking.com for as long as it has been available.
HOWEVER, just tried to do the upgrade to version 4 but cannot get it past my Avira AntiVir as the Icon Tray part of the programme contains a suspicious file...TR/Dropper.VB.skhcf
What's going on???

It's a false positive.

I did a direct download onto my v3 and Norton didn't complain.

Can you white list it in Avira or contact Avira to report it as a false positive.

yes that is a false positive unfortunately even though Shane has his programs time stamped with a valid digital cert i believe its even done with comodo rsa certs. anyways antivirus's like to flag programs as a generic that's the first i've seen as a trojan dropper lol. it's safe just click ignore or submit to your av for analysis. it should come back as okay.
