    Default ZA-Antispyware has found a trojan in K-Lite Codec Pack: false positive or not?

    Hello,
    ZAAS has found a trojan (Win32.Downloader.Winfixer.o) in my K-Lite Codec Pack. I downloaded K-Lite from a legitimate site (the dutch ZDnet), and I know half the world has this pack installed, so does anybody know if ZAAS is correct or not?
    I'm leaning towards false postive cause my other AS-programs (Ewido, Windows Defender and such) say it's ok. But who knows for sure?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:6.5

    All three of these well recognized sites offer the download. Probably safe and just a false positive.

    Znet is a safe bet for safe downloads.

    yeah, I also thought that ZDnet was pretty safe, until I heard they offered Spyware Terminator as a download. The company behind it is an infamous spammer and what do you know: DrWeb Cure It diagnosed it as a trojan on my pc. So, I'm pretty sceptical.
    I want to see which file ZA has quarintined so I can google the filename and see what I can find out, but when I look under Alerts & Logs and then spyware the tab stays blank.
    Do you know how I can see what the filename is when a file has been quarintined by ZA?

    Just do a jotti scan>

    http://virusscan.jotti.org/

    upload it and there are multilple scanners with a readout of the results. Plus it is freeware.

    The ZA scanner is poor in the result windows- like many scanners.
