I wouldnt trust this one at the end of a long stick.

Quote info page //
"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."

HotKeysHook.dll

This file is a part of the TRAINER MAKER KIT, a popular program used to create trainers.

All of that sounds nice and dandy, but very few trainers gives any warning at all, but when things like this one:

Discovered: November 12, 2006
Updated: March 16, 2007 7:51:32 AM
Also Known As: LIneage YI [Computer Associates], Bloodhound.KillAV [Symantec]
Type: Trojan
Infection Length: Varies
Systems Affected: Windows 2000, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP

Infostealer.Gampass is a generic detection for a Trojan horse that steals online game accounts, such as Lineage, Ragnarok online, Rohan, and Rexue Jianghu.

Like this trainer... sure, your choise to trust or not, but I play online games, and not a chanse I would take a risk with that. Simply closing all discussion on it and refering to a page that dosnt specificly mention the warning in the case... no, no and no.

Your information says that it has flagged it as a generic trojan (Bloodhound is Norton's terminology used when making heuristic detections rather than ones by database) rather than a specific trojan like InfoStealer.

But if you truley believe so still, use the report bad link at the bottom of the trainer list on the site (before the message board links).
