is it a False positive?

Recommended Posts

Greetings folks

I have been using DAEMON Tools Lite for years.

Today i downloaded the latest verson from www.filehippo.com/download_daemon_tools/

And it moved the file to quarantine.

 

11/28/2013 4:35:57 PM    Real-time file system protection    file    C:\Downloads\Software\DTLite4481-0347.exe    Win32/DownWare.L potentially unwanted application    deleted - quarantined    PC-XP-01    Event occurred on a new file created by the application: C:\Program Files\Free Download Manager\fdm.exe.

 

Is this a false positive ? should i reduce my threat level ?

Thanks

kalu

Hello Kalu,

 

many file download services are adding things into popular software packages.

I would recommend you to download it from manufacturer's web site.

No, it's a potentially unwanted application, not malware or another kind of threat. You can exclude it from scanning directly from within the yellow notification window.
