    Default updsdk.dll has Trojan.Downloader according to IObit

    I just ran an IObit Malware fighter scan and it came up with a threat in a ZA file:
    Name: Trojan.Downloader
    Type: File
    Path: C:\windows\system32\zonelabs\avsys\updsdk.dll
    ?!!

    I'm wondering if I should hit the repair button or not.

    Before I work through that, should I not just let IObit repair the file? I'd have done that if I wasn't wondering if perhaps it isn't a false positive. How can I tell? Is it possible for one of ZA's own system files to get infected? Also, is it likely to be harmless if I hit the repair button in the case of a false positive?

    I never heard of "IObit repair the file",
    a quick search for revues on Google search engine shows comments from users that questioned it's efectiveness..

    This could be A false positive that should be fixed by IOBIT. ?

    Also since you have not provided information about what Type and Version of Zone Alarm you installed and what Windows OS and version, it is Possible that "IObit" may be Conflicting with Zone Alarm..

    A false positive that should be fixed by IOBIT not here. Report to them, they are the only one to confirm it since its their detection not ZA one, thanks.

    Also never run two antivirus software at the same time you will just get more conflicts, applications fighting for resources and blocking each other in case of infections. End result --> less protection.

    Just choose one security tool and master it.

    Thanks, George. Sorry, I assumed that providing all that detail would not be necessary because I think this is a standard ZoneAlarm system file and I really just wanted guidance on how to work out if this was a False Positive or not.

    The scan was by IObit Malware Fighter v1.2 (not the only software of the sort I have used)
    I am using Win7 SP1 and ZA Anti-virus v. 9.3.037.000 (I downgraded from v. 10 because I didn't like that v. 10 did away with the choice to Remember this Setting with program control alerts.)
    The file details for updsdk.dll say it's a Kaspersky Lab file, version 8.0.1.24, size, 1 150 976 bytes, and the Date Modified is 2009/10/13. It installed with ZA, Win 7 says there are no previous versions available, and on the basis of that fact and the date, I'm guessing it's a false positive. Would you say that's a safe bet?

    Yes, it is most likely a false positive,

    Also, I agree with Guru Fax, if "IObit" contains any Security features that duplicate Features in ZA Anti-virus, then your computer is at risk, do to Conflict..

    Finally, ZA Anti-virus v. 9.3.037.000 is no longer supported..

    Please read this Forum Link..

    Thanks, guys.

    Yes, I don't leave both running at the same time. I just ran a scan because of a problem I have with runaway/CPU munching svchost.exe (netsvcs) and vsmon.exe. ZA isn't picking up any malware.

    And yes, obviously I should report a false positive to them but I'm not sure yet if it is a false positive and
    >>> I really just wanted to confirm here if that is indeed a standard ZA system file in it's proper place and likely to be harmed if I allow another prog to "repair" it.<<<
    Did any of you check if you had the same file in the same location?
