This is a potential virus/spyware. Do not download...why would you pay for these lame cheats on this website when the website admins don't even test all of these cheats before posting them up. Pretty stupid I think for people to pay for this kind of junk. LOL!

There isn't a virus. They scan any file before they upload it, however some antivirus systems detect some files as viruses

Did you receive a VIRUS, TROJAN or SPYWARE warning from one of the files you downloaded from our site? Please be aware that we scan all of the files we upload with multiple antivirus and spyware applications before posting them on the website. Some files, such as trainers, can often set off a scanner's heuristic warnings which may result in them being labeled a "GENERIC" or "SUSPICIOUS" trojan or virus. This is simply because of the way trainers work. They modify another program while it's running and also listen for keys to be pressed on the computer so the options can activate. This is exactly what a real trojan might do.

If you're ever in doubt, scan the file here: virusscan.jotti.org/

This will scan with 18 different antivirus scanners and report the findings immediately. If a file is truly infected, it should set off at least 70% of them. If the only thing that shows as positive is GENERIC, SUSPICIOUS or PACKER then the file is typically clean.

You have a heretic virus scanner. This means that not only does your product scan for known viruses, but it will scan for programs with virus like behavior. ALL trainers require them to log the keys you push so it knows when to activate it's cheat effect. This monitor activity is a well known in almost (if not all) keyloggers which can set off some Anti-viruses. The trainer, however, does not upload information on what you do inside the game since we don't care how you play it.

I downloaded this trainer (sc4rushhourtrn1.zip, 128k) from your database. I'm using Trend Micro Internet Security. It's better to have a heretic virus scanner than get infected, hehe. Here's a sample of what popped up while running the cheat.

There was another detection from my Trend Micro, but I forgot what it was and forgot to take a screen shot of it. I just want to be on the safe side, but thanks for your replies.

I think that is the file for the hotkeys. Without that, you can't use the hotkeys of the trainer. It is nothing suspicious with that.

That file has a very BAD probability of it having a virus. I guess it's popping up because Windows has to run the DLL (ActiveX controls, I think). Just ignore it (if there is an option in the security suite for that one special file. Remember, it still can get infected from another location, the C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder is prone to attacks, so be on the lookout for viruses still. For a shorter answer, you're safe .

This is what my Anti Virus Came up as (PC Shield Deluxe Edition Ranked top 10 best antiviruses by user vote)

Process C:\Documents and Settings\James\Local Settings\Temp\Rar$EX00.672\Sim.City.4.Rush.Hour.Expansion.Plus.1.Trainer.exe (PID: 2688) is attempting to invade process C:\Program Files\Maxis\SimCity 4\Apps\SimCity 4.exe (PID: 1112). This behaviour is typical of some malware.

That is all it does, since i dont save some zips from websites its kept in my temp folder which as it says there. It is Trying to access the zip because thats where the trainer is running from, Then once it has the trainer (PID: 2688) it says thats its trying to access my sim city executable file not the system Registry or whatever trojans do. Thats all it does. Case closed, This file Is "CLEAN"
