    In my experience 'most freeware installers' do not set off virus warnings in AVG. I've installed a lot of files that use a wide selection of these installers from all over the world, and this is the first time it has happened to me.

    Matt if the prolem is with AVG free virus prtection program I doubt that it's on your end. I had your sound sets for sometime and when I got one of the latest virus protection updates from AVG I got that warning. I say repost the sound files.

    Yes I'm reposting the sound files but I'm dumping the EXE's because I don't want end users to have problems downloading them...

    I'm switching back to standard ZIP files, a process that should be completed by this weekend... The page is back up and will slowly have the effected sound sets reposted in ZIP files...

    From the AVG forum re sheur trojans


    YOU SUSPECT A FILE TO BE A FALSE POSITIVE

    All Users

    With the AVG Free Edition AV this is the only way to deal with false positives.... Also AVG Free Edition doesn't allow you to exclude files from detection, that is a feature only available in the AVG Pro (paid for) versions....

    Please try to update your AVG Free Edition and run the AVG Free Edition Complete Test again. If you suspect a file to be a false positive. Test the file at [virusscan.jotti.org] and
    if it is a false positive, archive (zip, arc, tar etc) the file using a password and email a copy to [email protected] with a brief description as well as the password you used to archive it with.

    If it is a false positive , turn off hueristic scanning for the time being (This option is available in the Scan test settings and also in the Resident Shield setting in the Control Center). When AVG Technologies adjusts the virus defintions you can turn it back on. If turning off Hueristics still doesn't allow access to the file while testing and emailing... disable the resident shield temporarily but remember to re-enable it afterwards [forum.grisoft.cz].

    TIP This may be req'd. with Win Vista OS... From the Windows Start menu... locate the AVG Control Center icon and right click on it then select Run As Administrator... you may get asked for the admin password if your user account you are preforming it from isn't the admin account... disable the Resident Shield and then complete the rest of the above
    instructions.

    I've pulled all downloads (just sounds), and I intend to replace the EXE's with standard ZIP files... That should solve the problem...

    For those of you who did have a problem, if you haven't already, I recommend DELETING the affected files... I hope to have this mess sorted out soon...

    So are you uploading the sound to box.net or you website. Cause I cant download files from box.net, they keep coming up as .efw files.

    Taken straight from the site-- "IF YOU CANNOT DOWNLOAD THE SET FOR WHATEVER REASON, E-MAIL ME AND I WILL SEND YOU THE SET YOU WISH TO DOWNLOAD"

    I've redownloaded and checked the files from UKTrainsim that AVG was identifying SHeur in - AVG now says they are clean, so I assume the latest AVG update has removed the false positive virus identification.

    Sorry for the scare, but better safe than . . . . . . !!!
