Okay, so ever since I put System Shock Portable (a modified version of SystemShock 1 with mouselook among other mods) I've been getting this detection message from AVG whenever it runs a scan. All it says is to report the result though. So here I am, reporting the result.

 

 

"";"Multiple runtime compression aspack,nupx, C:\Users\Shade the Wolf\Documents\My Games\SYSTEMSHOCK-Portable-v1.2.2\RES\gulikoza\3dfxSpl2.dll";"Report message"

Hi -

I think the best place to report / question this would be to the AVG forum.

 

Do you get a report from any other security program ??

If you suspect a file was falsely detected (a false positive) or appears suspicious, then you should submit a sample to the vendor so they can investigate and take corrective action if confirmed. Please refer to:You should also contact and advise the vendor that their program is being detected as a threat. In many cases they will work with the anti-virus techs in an attempt to resolve the detection.

Ah kay. I will make a post on the systemshock.org forums then. Though it has probably been addressed already. SSP is old after all. By at least a year.

 

As for if any other scanners pick up the files used by SSP... Not that I remember. AVG's the only one that freaks out. MBAM ignores it completely and So does Spybot.

 

EDIT: I will do that tomorrow (later today) though. I'm going to bed. Thanks for all your suggestions.
