I have recently upgraded from Portable Apps 1.5 to 1.6. I had no problems until today when my McAfee Virus scan started up automatically today. I shut it down because I had urgent things to do. I started Portable Apps and lo and behold, up pops a McAfee Warning Window with the words (by the way, I have a JPG of the window, but I can't seem to upload it on this forum) (quoting exactly):
McAfee has automatically blocked and removed a Trojan.
About this Trojan
Detected: Artemis!0E1A49A03054(Trojan), Artemis!0E1A49A03054(Trojan)
Location: I:\Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableApps.com\PortableAppsPlatform.exe
I am 95% sure I got the 1.6 version from this Portable Apps site (do you have other websites that offer it?). I have never had any other problems with other versions.
This error stopped the operation of 1.6 completely - not even the Portable Apps window would load. So I have reinstalled 1.5, and that works fine. I did like the features of 1.6 though.
Anyway I just thought I would let you know and maybe you know what to correct.
I am pretty amazed by the Portable Apps environment and all it is achieving. To have all of these programs on my USB is simply incredible and so user friendly. Well done to every contributor! Hopefully I can contribute something in the future!
