    Default Win32.Downloader.Tiny.bqv.2

    ZoneAlarm Pro just detected this on my system, yet the log only gives type, category and name, no path. I would like to analyze this at VirusTotal.com because I think it's a false positive.

    Does anyone know how to find the path? The log was worthless.

    I currently have Avira Free, Prevx3, and Threatfire 4.5 on my system. None of these other programs detected Win32.Downloader.Tiny.bqv.2. That's why I think it's a false positive. But, then again, every detection on my system over the past 4 years (by any anti-malware program) has turned out to be a false positive. Therefore, I have very little trust in any detection, yet I still verify them.

    OK. This does appear to be a false positive. I found that the detection was "services: sptd." By doing a Google search of "services: sptd", I found this bleeping computer post: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/star...sys-13477.html

    Afterwords, I restored the detection from quarantine and uninstalled Daemon Tools 4. I ran the registry cleaner of CCleaner and then ran another ZoneAlarm Pro scan. This time there was no detection, even though, C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\sptd.sys still exists on my system.
