Ad-Aware VS Avast / Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Posted 07 March 2011 - 08:41 PM
I downloaded a game from a couple of different sources. Whatever version I try to start, I get a message from Ad-Aware (Ad-Watch Live) that the process was blocked because it was identified as Win32.Trojan.Midgare. However, when I run Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on the exe or the folder, both indicates that all is clean. I checked the comments section on both sites where I got the game and nobody is reporting any virus or malware. I wonder if it could be a false positive from Ad-Aware but how I can be sure? I don't want to willingly infect my computer. Any advice?

If you confirm a false detection of a particular file, then you should contact Ad-Aware's Tech Support and advise them so their technicians can investigate and make corrections to its database definitions.
