You can just ignore it.  I can assure you that the file is safe.  Virus detectors will often say that things are "malicious" or a "threat" from MsgPlus (or associated sites) because of the optional ad-ware in the MsgPlus unstaller (and realistically it isn't that bad, Patchou has made sure it doesn't do any damage).  Just don't stress about it and use the ignore button and everything should be alright.

Thanks for reporting this to us though, we may get in contact with AVG and recommend they look into the reasoning behind this and try to fix it.

There is absolutely nothing in the file/source that even could be considered a threat!!!!!!

The only thing it does is accessing a registry setting which has absolutely no further value at all for Windows or any other program than Plus!. And that is also the only link to Plus! in the whole file; a registry setting....

It is absolutely flabbergasting rediculus that this is detected as a virus!


Thanks for reporting though....

------------------------

Make sure you have truely closed AVG (quite often such anti-virus programs do not completely close when you exit them, or they might still have a Windows Service running in the background). Then redownload the file and save it to your hard disk first.

Never run an application straight from the download dialog, that's asking for trouble (but that is another matter). And don't save downloads to your desktop either, that's very messy.

Clicking on ignore in anti-virus programs also quite often still put the file in quarity, meaning that you indeed can't start the file/program. Ignore in such cases does not mean "ignore this threat", but often means "do not attempt to remove the virus, but keep the file as-is and block it from being used".

However, AVG shouldn't do that, and when you click on ignore it should completely leave the file alone. To solve this issue you better contact support of AVG itself.

Looks like AVG will be heading the same route as Norton with it's "uber dangerous registry calls" :(

I'm trying to run the file, but getting an error. Yes, I've downloaded the redistributables and have and registered the ocx file.
The zip file extracts the exe fine, but the exe only has the default executable icon, and i get the attached error when running it

Here's an update. After I restarted my PC and ran the checker again, AVG opened up and wants to clean the file. Obviously, i select ignore. Disabling AVG's resident shield allowed the file to run.

FYI, AVG detected the file as Obfustat.EVT

Yes, that is the same issue what DanKane316 posted before. There is nothing wrong or malicious in this tool at all. MS Word does far more "damaging" than this tool.

-------------

DanKane316, exit/disable AVG completely. Just exiting AVG doesn't close it completely. As MeEtc has said, disable AVG's Resident Shield  Service too....

(and that is, on a personal note, what I so dislike about the modern anti-whatever programs... they are quite often as hard, if not harder to get rid of than (some) spyware. Exiting an application should close it completely)....

The Sound Library Fix doesn't work with Vista (though silly me should've noticed the first post was in 2005!).

My niece loved her library of sounds and was forever bugging me with them on MSN. When she tries to send me them now, they appear as weird numbers and letters. I've tried uninstalling her Messenger Plus! and putting new Sound Packs on, but it's still doing it.

Anyone have any ideas, please? (I'm on XP and my Sound Library still works fine).
