I'm not sure if what I'm reporting is a false positive or not however after running an AdAware scan, it detected and quarantined everything relating to a program that modifies memory addresses - trainers for games.
Not only did it quarantine every trainer I had, it also quarantined the exe file of a program I downloaded and installed myself from the author's website. It also seemed to brand all the trainers as trojans that were entirely unrelated to the program at hand - for instance, how would a program designed to change memory addresses for game-related processes relate to a trojan virus designed to download and install adware? Makes no sense to me.
It also seemed to just "stick" a virus name to each file as despite each exe file being downloaded from different locations at widely apart dates, they were all given similar definitions.
A total of 12 files were detected as viruses, all of them relating to a keygen and trainers for games. Only a small infection of cookies were detected, which was to be expected. Did you want a full upload of all files?
One of the programs detected was Cheat Engine - a program designed to create trainers for games via the manipulation of memory addresses. It was downloaded from http://cheatengine.org/ and millions of users are using this program with no issue.
What further gives me doubts is that Avast considers all of these files safe and detected no trojans anywhere on the system - whereas if these trojans were present, they would have been detected.
Can anyone provide answers? I'd like my trainers back please
