Most of you may already know this who use the unlocker utility (and I find it rather handy). Well, discovery yesterday, it is detected by some security programs (MSE as Trojan, and NOD32 as Adware in particular), but there is one problem with this detection. I wouldn't call it a false positive per-se, but I'd call it more of a take-away of the user's rights. The only reason that it is detected is because of a clearly optional component that automatically starts up IE and redirects the user to www.ebay.com. What right do security programs have flagging programs due to optional components? I don't understand it, and I'd seriously recommend that the above companies reconsider their decision. Let me know what you here in this community think, and I'll certainly complain myself if you'd like.
