Hey yall'

Found 'Trace.Directory.PigSearch' while running A-squared scanner, but it shows up with nothing else, Trend, Spybot, Adaware...I went to the folder it says it is in...and found nothing. Also checked the registry entries it says are created, and found nothing....Very confused.

Below is my log....when you get time ( I know yall are busy)....Thanks in advance. :thumbsup:

Hello,

I can't see anything strange here. Can you tell me where A-squared finds this all the time?

Hey miekiemoes,

Here's a screen shot...I have looked in this folder, and it is empty...Could this be some kind of 'glitch'??
I haven't noticed anything odd at all with my system, everything seem to be running fine.

Thanks Again

Hi,

This is indeed a false positive.
Also read here:
http://forum.emsisoft.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=1807

From the thread:

Posted : vrijdag 2 februari 2007 14:51:34

Detection of Trace.Directoy.PigSearch in the startup folder is a false positive. We will fix it in one of the next updates.


This was posted yesterday and they updated the databases immediately to fix this. So update your A-squared :thumbsup:
