Viruses reported in 2.5.8.0 downloads

Recommended Posts

When I downloaded the latest version, 2.5.8.0 from filehippo and majorgeek, my Norton 360 found viruses and deleted the file.  When I downloaded 2.5.7.0 there was no problem.  Norton said the viruses I found were very nasty.  I don't know if this issue is about your file or something from those sites. with al the ads on your site, I could not find a way to download directly from you .  Maybe you could make your download more apparent. Everything I clicked on that said 2.5.8.0 led me to commercial sites.

 

I am glad that 2.5.7 worked.  It's an excellent program.. Thank you.

 

Here are the norton reports

It finds the opencandy plugin used by the installer. You can read about opencandy on their website. It's an advertising plugin for installation programs. If you don't want what it offers you, opt out of installing said 3rd party apps.
