Download.com decided recently to bundle applications they offer for download with a "secure installer" that contains a toolbar. That is what gets detected by NOD32. I am not sure if there is some kind of "vendor opt-out" but we will at least try to get them to drop it for our products.

Since you are a Wilders user you may want to take a look here as well:

:blink:

Thanks for the heads up

I'm adding download.com to Host Rules in EAM: Block and notify.

Fortunately I usually use Softpedia for my downloads so I'm safe ;)
