Norton .exe complain [SOLVED]

<< < (2/3) > >>

why don't you try ?

ad maiora

Nice advice Qedo, I'd forgotten about Virustotal, its a great quick fix for anyone with false positive nervousness.

Yep, thanks for the hint chaps! I didnĀ“t know of that one.
It seems one of my executables point to an adware BKAV PRO is able to detect.

It could be because I use "Resource Hack" to change icons on my GLB games, I usually notice that after the process, the exe file also gets quite shorter.
Throwing my version on that site also points adware inside the tool.

I have checked my other games, which also had icon changed by resource hack, a no other one seems to behave like that.

Very strange. Still, I will want to change that file at itchio just in case.
Maybe it is time to look on how to change the icon while compiling instead of using a hack tool. :) 

I'm running win 7, Microsoft essentials keep saying GCD inside GLBasic has viruses so I updated for the latest steam version and it seems to be ok now.
Still, after recompiling Burger Lord with the proper icon set up, no hack tool, I sent it to that site and got this:
MaxSecure - Trojan.Malware.300983.susgen - Acronis

Now that is different to the first warning on the older file, still, it sucks to have it happening.
Maybe my system is compromised? I truly doubt it but if that only happens on my side, then that might be it.

Loaded another project, Microsoft essentials has this to say about GLBasic: (see attachment)
Than I allowed GDC through and compiled, worked all fine, sent it to Virus Total and nothing was detected.
Loaded BurgerlordĀ“s project, compiled, sent to Virus total and I get the same MaxSecure trojan warning.

Reading about it on the internets is quite a confusion, but the false positive theories are there.
What the heck could be going on? I will have to look it a bit further.

I think the problem might be on my end, saved the project on another location and went on adding the media and now those virus total are not complaining about it anymore.
