    my norton 2003 antivirus discovered a trojan virus, it says my servudaemon.exe is a virus ???

    so he deleted ( quarantaine ) it but its my server software i downloaded a new servu software from the official homepage and when i installed it he tells me again theres a virus in it ? i think its a false warning, does anyone know more about this ?

    I don't know. I had it call Photoshop.exe a virus as well as Winrar.exe. I think it scores highly on alert rates because it's too sensitive.

    It's ok but FZ is small, stable and simple. BTFP at least is pretty secure.

    I get the same thing in mine with mcafee, it don't say it's a virus though - It just says it's a probable unwanted app, and points to the Serv-U setup exe file .. I just ignore it ..
