    Default SuperAntiSpyware 5 - false positives?

    Installed the new version to test it and got these alarms which I consider to be false:





    The first 4 ones are belonging to QuickTime, the next 4 doesn't tell me anything.

    Can someone enlighten me, please.

    Hi, japp.

    Did you install any new software recently that included a toolbar? SAS appears to be the only program that currently identifies those CLSIDs as adware, pointing to a toolbar. One example identified is the FLV Player ((Solved) - Browser Hijacker.Deskbar with Eltima Filebulldog toolbar How-To Geek Forums). Here's an older report identified by Kaspersky: ThreatExpert Report: not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.Mostofate.ah, not-a-virus:AdWare.Win32.Mostofate

    Hi, japp.

    I cannot read the Outpost image. If you have 127.0.0.1 ca.abv.bg in your HOSTS file, that means that any attempts to go to that location will fail. Do you have the MVPS HOSTS file? It is listed there: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt

    I cannot tell anything else from the images posted. If you find you need assistance, please let me know and I'll do my best to help.

    Corrine: Yes, I'm using the MVPS HOSTS file and I compared the original with the one in my system and that entry was not in the original.
    Thanks for replying
    No, I'll manage.
