    W32.Trojan.Gen detected in SpoonUninstaller.exe

    My antivirus program (WebRoot) has detected a W32.Trojan.Gen infection in C:\Windows\System32\SpoonUninstaller.exe. Has anyone else seen this?

    Is it possible that something nasty on my machine has infected this file? Can I do a CRC or MD5 check to confirm that the file is uninfected? The modification date is 28/09/2015 15:03 and the file size is 5,938,792 bytes.

    Visit:

    https://www.virustotal.com/

    and upload the file to be checked by 20 different virus checkers.

    It will be a false positive, report the file to your anti-virus provider.

    Thanks! I have done this and there is one virus report from ByteHero. All other results are good. WebRoot is not on the list of checkers used. I will report this to WebRoot.

    I've reported it and Webroot have now fixed the problem.
