Notepad++ Portable Trojan/Virus?

Hi,
avast tells me, that there is a trojan/worm/virus in Notepad++ Portable - in the file SciLexer.dll.

Can you verify this - or am I paranoid Wink ?

Thanks
Herbert

alarm, as usual. Many antivius say there are trojans or what in the portables, but this is doe to the fact that they scan nowadays only what could be malware but not what is, since search for real files they have given up long time ago.

Send them the file zipped with password (often INFECTED) is used as password in such cases. Few hours later you will get an apollogise and the definitions will be updated.

I did it with avast, kaspersky, mcafee , fprot etc and it did work .
