Got an error from AVG antivirus

Hi all,

 

I got an AVG antivirus error from, that says that there's a trojan horse Inject3.XRR in d:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST8\Custom\LinkChecker\bin\LinkChecker.exe

 

My ST8 is MP3 and was clean installed on the computer from GTAC download. This is the first time I'm getting this AVG pop-up. The same executable has been run on the laptop and on the desktop and the laptop has the same AVG error on it. Only one of these can be fired up once, since I've got one networked license for it. 

 

I don't know if this is normal and can be ignored or is linkchecker a real threat. I'd appreciate if anyone knowlegeable would care to illuminate?

 

BTW I've moved to ST7 and now to 8 from another competing CAD and don't have deep experience with SE.

 

Thank you

Naresh

Best regards,
Naresh

Hi Naresh,

 

i checked my LinkChecker.exe with MSE and it didn't find anything suspect.

I think this is a false positive warning.

Folks, its likely that your own anti-virus is ok with it, my question is whether anyone with AVG could check this out. Else, I'll have to go over my installation with a comb and perhaps change my anti-virus as well...
