Trend Micro Office Scan recognizes ad-aware.mis as a trojan

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just tried installing the free version of Ad-Aware from Lavasoft, but as soon as I run the installation file I get an alert from my antivirus programme, Trend Micro Office Scan, that the ad-aware.msi file (located in a temp directory) is a trojan (to be specific: troj_dloader.bmc). Is the file truly infected or could it be a false positive? Please let me know! Tnx in advance.

Hi swest,

If you downloaded the file from lavasoft.com, download.cnet.com, softpedia.com or tucows.com the file is hardly infected and you should report this to Trend Micro as a false positive so they can fix the error.

Hi Cecilia,

Tnx for answering! I downloaded the file from lavasoft.com, so it's definitely most likely a false positive, like you say. I will inform Trend Micro about it.

Wish you nice holidays!
