When you download this and extract the zip, McAfee Virus Scan 8.0 picks up a contained file mailpv.exe as infected with a trojan named Generic PWS.f

However I have not yet assertained if this is a false positive given the nature of the program

I read the program's website and it states that this is a known issue of false positives with certain anti-virus software.

This is common with most programs that 'hack' into secured areas of memory. Google "hidewindow". This is a program I would use to see if malware was running hidden and AV programs always called it a threat.

Seems to don't work with GMX ( IMAP accounts and Thunderbird: password not retrieved.

The ZIP seems to have the same 1/25/09 version. Why is it flagged as updated 3/14/09?

In any case, "Virus Total" (a site where you can upload files and have them scanned by numerous tools) reports it's clean. I agree that anything that hacks into otherwise-secure files is going to get falsely accused.

When I tried to install it, it did not run. Then my Panda Cloud Antivirus informed me "One virus newtrlized" - it was mailpv.exe
