As it came down at similar time best way is to remove same file and retry the install if you get it again I would say that is partly proof.
Re malware that is an old detection maybe restore the file and submit it to Virus total and see what they say.
I had something similar to this happen to me earlier on this year when I installed a program called MicroDEM, albeit it quarantined the program uninstaller via heuristics (how I know was its Artemis.**** designation). It's very likely that some kind of trojan was packaged with the software or a sample very similar to said trojan was detected via heuristics.
Could you put the link (albeit with a break between the name and .com so it's not an active hyperlink) lto the site where you downloaded it? There's a user/moderator by the name of Hayton on here who might be of some assistance and be able to inspect the site.
FYI: I'd also suggest downloading SiteAdvisor. If the site you visited had a green check, it's likely legit. However if it's got anything else...well, ya might want to submit it for review, or in the case of a red "X" just avoid 'em until they straighten things out.
Hello Elizabeth and welcome to the McAfee Community Forums,
In addition to the information & recommendations kindly-provided by Moderator Tony & conductorwho, I would also suggest you check out ANY game site you visit...BEFORE you actually visit it...even if it is a site you have visited numerous times before.
I've experienced a couple of occasions where I have downloaded games without any problems from a game site which wasn't blacklisted or otherwise flagged by any of the sources I use to check out a website.
Then several months - 1 year later, when I re-visited the websites, I discovered some of the security resources I use (including McAfee's SiteAdvisor) were now flagging the sites for issues ranging from spamming/misleading advertising up to exploits & other serious malware issues.
Some security resources you can use to check out websites you visit include:
- IPvoid (You need to enter the game site's actual numerical IP address here)
- Web of Trust (aka WOT)
I moved this to Malware Discussions > Home User Assistance as a possibly better spot for it.
