    please WHAT??

    Damn, that guys at Avira soon drives us nuts!
    We even have a customer who is in beta-team there.

    Maybe we now have to announce to not use Avira anymore
    but something else when you plan to use DT Pro. It is obvious
    they are not capable to handle complex process to identify
    real spyware/adware and a LICENSEkeyfile which has ABSOLUTLEY
    NO adware NOR spyware in it.

    My goodness

    maybe you can try to get in touch with them.. and explain them that it is definitely not malware!

    Obviously if the malware is found via heuristics, then it's just an assumption. IMAO, their heuristics engine is flawed.

    Knowing the DT team, its more than wrapped with UPX, since UPX is incredibly easy to unwrap

    I've been using Bitdefender 8 for ages and I havent ran into any false positives yet with packed/encrypted files That says something about this Avira crap which I tried in the past...

    Daumen runter Hmmm...

    I think you guys should just come clean and say that that file is where the adware is; because according to the latest beta of ESS ( Eset Smart Security), dtprohlp.dll is a variant of Win32/Adware.WhenU.SaveNow and heres a picture to prove it,

    Latest from Avira :-
    File ID Filename Size (Byte) Result
    1098649 dtprohlp.dll 367.95 KB FALSE POSITIVE


    Please find a detailed report concerning each individual sample below:
    Filename Result
    dtprohlp.dll FALSE POSITIVE

    The file 'dtprohlp.dll' has been determined to be 'FALSE POSITIVE'. In particular this means that this file is not malicious but a false alarm. Detection will be removed from our virus definition file (VDF) with one of the next updates.

    Is it maybe because you are using an adware version of DT?

    The DTools team has always been upfront about the adware included in the standard and the ad-supported versions, so why would they try to hide it now?

    its because of this post.... and its kinda fishy putting the adware in a .dll that appears to be related to help for DT Pro, they could have made it plain in sight the name of the adware or something along those lines, why go through all the trouble to make it in to something else?
