Hi,

I get this message popping up in my bottom-right corner of my screen from Kaspersky.  It's paid and up-to-date.  Its named dm1393891595.exe, and google came up with no matches. I looked into it and it seems to be either from ilivid download manager (hence the dm in the file title), or sourcefourge.net...

Thanks everyone!!!

Hello,

This software is not a virus or a Trojan. It is detected as a "potentially unwanted program" (PUP). PUPs are any piece of software that a reasonably security- or privacy-minded computer user may want to be informed of and, in some cases, remove. PUPs are often made by a legitimate corporate entity for some beneficial purpose, but they alter the security state of the computer on which they are installed, or the privacy posture of the user of the system, such that most users will want to be aware of them.

That said I would remove it.
 
I also moved this from WIN7 to the Am I Infected area.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
