When I intended to install the freshly downloaded VLC Portable 1.0.3, VirusScan detected a Trojan (GnuCompiler). I received more than one hundred messages, each one for different "dll", similar to:

04/11/2009 9:48:22 Eliminado (error al limpiar porque no se puede limpiar la detección) A\user D:\Documents and Settings\user\Mis documentos\Descargas\VLCPortable_1.0.3.paf.exe D:\Documents and Settings\user\Mis documentos\PortableApps\VLCPortable\App\vlc\plugins\libzvbi_plugin.dll GnuCompiler (Troyano)

I am sure this is a false detection. But How can I avoid it and get a VLC functioning?

Thanks :|

I just ended a scan with Clam Win Portable, and it reports no viruses. So the problem apparently is with McAffee Virus Scan Enterprise definitions. Wink

Can't provide support for mcaffee. You'll need to make an exception for those dll. Also please report them as a false positive to mcaffee.

Too many bridges you can burn
Too many tables you can't turn
Don't wanna live my life in the real world
