When starting up GimpPortable 2.6.2, Spyware Doctor gives an "High Risk Level" popup with the following report:
Threat Name - Adware.Agent.BN Details - Spyware Doctor has blocked an application attempting to access a file. Risk Level - High Infection - C:\PROGRAM FILES\PORTABLE APPS PLATFORM\PORTABLEAPPS\GIMPPORTABLE\APP\GIMP\BIN\LIBCROCO-0.6-3.DLL
Why would LIBCROCO-0.6-3.DLL report Adware? It wasn't there with previous releases and I cant get it removed. Blocking it with Spyware Doctor doesn't seem to affect Gimp's stability.
It's a legitimate Gimp-file, your "security"-software is just confused .
Maybe the .dll has been upx'ed or whatever ..
Yup, it's safe, see this thread: https://portableapps.com/node/16280
Just a false positive
today I got an annoying problem during backing up my portables. When I moved the Gimp Portable from desktop folder to usb-device, Vista Home Premium blocked access to the file iwarp.exe located in C:\...\Desktop\Portables\GIMPPortable\App\gimp\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\
I suppose that iwarp.exe is packed with upx or something similar. Although I am logged in as administrator, Vista shows a message that access is denied and I don't have the rights to access the file or to modify the user access policies. So, at the moment I am not able to open, move or delete the iwarp.exe. I have already shut down all virus-/malware-scanning processes including windows defender, but access is still blocked. Does anybody know if there is any Vista process that must be shut down as well to get back control over the file? I think this problem could be related to a windows defender definitions update lately... Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks,
/// edit - one day later ///
The problem is solved after a system recovery: it seems that windows defender (program and definitions after 16/12/2008) blocks certain files without warning, even when it is turned off. And there seems to be no way to unblock or delete them afterwards.
