On a remote computer I am trying to fix, NOD32 flagged OTScanIt.exe as a virus. I temporarily disabled NOD32, but now when I try to download from it from "http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/oldtimer/OTScanIt.exe", I get a file not found error.

I am assuming the two things are related, but I supposed it is not impossible that the file is coincidentally gone.

Is there anywhere else I can download it? Or does anyone have any other ideas as to what is going on?

Hello, max6166.

When you shutdown Nod32, are you sure you disabled IMON?

If you disable the file scanner it will not delete a file from your machine, but if IMON (internet monitor) is still active it will terminate any download of such a file.

Also note that the link is case sensitive. If it wasn't typed using that EXACT case it will return file not found.

Try this one:

Good luck :thumbsup:

I am still not sure what it was and get a file not found error in FireFox. I can access the file with Internet Explorer though...?
