I know about the whole "false positive" thing - However this time it is different.

1. My IE Smart Screen Filter flat out BLOCKED it from being downloaded. I have downloaded TONS of trainers on your site, and this is the FIRST time the smart screen filter from IE flat out blocked a trainer from being downloaded (I had to use google chrome to actually get the file, and even that gave me a warning but at least let me download it.)

2. When I go to run the file it tries loading some random .tmp file in some random temp folder, and it gives me an error stating it cannot load the some random .tmp file since the file is not associated with any program. (probably because the .exe was quarantined before any real damage could be done)

3. I did a full meta-scan online and found these results (more than just 1 positive this time) - 6 actually! Now some of them are the normal false positives such as these:

a variant of Win32/HackTool.CheatEngine


However the other positives look a bit more disconcerting...

This is for the latest trainer for Pixel Piracy.

Please look into this,

I know that there is a chance all of these detections can be false and the smart screen filter is being dumb, but that error stating it could not load the .tmp file because of a file association error got me worried more than most - if you guys say it's OK then I'll trust you - but I just want this one double checked just to make sure. Thanks for your time again.

Have you tried scanning the trainer with this link virusscan.jotti.org/ which is what they recommend on this site?

Trainer is safe and a false positive. We have no control over which trainers random antivirus products decide to block and when. You can contact each vendor and report the false positive.
