Hy everyone. I installed today the daemon tools lite, and used it with some images. A few hours later, when i was watching a movie, the computer went stand-by, and began doing some stuff ( noticed by the HD led ). Then the antivirus popped an alert about the file SPTDinst-x86.exe, identifing it with the virus TR/Dropper.gen
It´s probably an false positive, but i tought that would be good let you know this. Following are my computer & software info. If a miss something, please let me know.
