    File: D:\Carputer\windownames.exe

    Found with Symantec corp 9.0 auto protect

    What is this about?
    2000 Sunfire build 100%, or is it ever really 100%?

    Would think it's because it's "spying" on the other programs to get their windownames..
    Think it's called Spy++ or something like that..

    No worries, it's not a virus.. AV's just think it's similar to one..

    Edit: Found a link for Spy++ on MSDN.. Click here

    Edit2: Though, it could still be a virus.. You never know do you..
    Try deleting the file and download it again.. Re-scan that file and see what your AV tells you..

    Cheers

    I got it from one of the posters in the Windowsnames app thread.

    I understand that, but it still doesnt explain why I am getting a virus alert when using a program distributed on these forums (not saying from David, from the other users redistributing)

    That's Semantec's datasheet on it. It looks like it's one of those Virii that 'attatches' to files on someone's computer. So if someone was infected, then reuploaded the file, it could've attatched itself. It might've even happened on a hosting server if their antivirus failed.
