  • 5 Webroot SecureAnywhere - Trojan Alert

When installing the evaluation version, I get a security alert from Webroot SecureAnywhere that the file quickmacrosportable.exe contains a Trojan. It is put in quarantaine.

How come?
I usually test qm program files with None of the 44 antivirus programs find false positives. But Webroot SecureAnywhere is not there, I cannot test.

quickmacrosportable.exe is used only in portable Quick Macros. Normal installed Quick Macros will work without it, but you cannot create portable Quick Macros.
Ok, I've seen the test results, there are some antivirus I like and use as well (NOD32) so I removed the file from quarantaine.
I'm now waiting for the promotion to buy the full product.

Very fast response.
Indeed, that's why I use this software since many years. One of the best I've ever used.
But you are fast as well, thank you for that!
