    This is not a virus or a Trojan. Most of the times It is detected as a "potentially unwanted program".

    But some scanners see it as a virus.

    PUPs "potentially unwanted program". are often made by a legitimate corporate entity for some beneficial purpose, but they alter the security state of the
    computer on which they are installed, or the privacy posture of the user of the system, such that most users will want to be aware of them.

    I run NOD32 visusscanner, and never had a virus! And my computer runs like a turbo! Its the best scanner!

    Im not saying you have a bad scanner.. But I tested out a lot.

    Thanks for posting scs. It's a harmless download.

    But Marina will reiterate it to the Casino that it is
    causing a concern amongst players. Hopefully someday
    they will be able to fix it.

    also, welcome to Bonus Paradise on your
    first post

    I myself run more than one type of scan on my PC. Never at the same time, as they seem to get in a fight with each other, but if I have doubts to what on may be saying, I try another, and maybe, one or two more.
    scswa316, no matter what poker site or casino site, program you download, they may have something that shows danger. Mainly what it is, is they way they set-up their tracking system, that may set the alarms off. The better known sites have these, so call virus, but they have been in contact with most virus software makers and those software makers try to keep their scanners up to date, but once in awhile, someone lags behind.
    Just something to think about, I run window vista, and a few months ago, I had an update, and sure enough my scanner, would not let it happen, an I had to manually allow it, and actually the system I would run, captured part of the file and put it in quarantine, which caused some problems until I found what had happen. I contacted all that mattered, and now no problem.
    Just got to remember Marina and Bonus Paradise, well only work with established casino and poker sites, and Bonus Paradise will not let any site hurt her members.
