  • RoadRunner Updater detected as a Virus!

    AVG is detecting RR_Updater.exe as a virus! Anyone got any input on this?

    Turn off heuiristic detection.
    It's not a virus, but a false positive.

    This has been brought up here before. search the forums.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      strength in numbers

      Its not a virus.
      I just started getting it detected by AVG today also, must of been something they added to the last update. AutoIT scripts get false positives from virus engines all the time.
      I think it has something to do with how the script is compiled, if you compile it with options or not.
      I can take the same scripts and compile it with and without options and the one with options allways gets detected as a virus.

        Thanks DP... lol guess I was a bit late getting in here to see what was going on. Cheers.

        /edit ... on a side note. I think the old discussion about this not being a virus was in the thread for the September release of roadrunner, and I think Guino deleted it... or else I'm not finding it... :-\ but anyways... yeah, no virus I use AVG on my machine, and is updated as soon as the updates are available, and scanned before uploading as well

        /edit #2 ... found one thread http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=86592
