    Hi all,
    has anybody tried scanning the file "jccatch.dll" (under the flashget installation directory) using AVG v7.1 it says the file is infected with a virus. If i heal it, the antivirus deletes it and there will be no browser click monitoring.

    anybody having any idea. :?: :!:

    I had similar problem and yes the file u mentioned has a virus
    its actually a BHO(Browser helper object) as per Microsoft Antispyware
    It modifies default settings of browsers and may hav a toolbar installed


    Use Microsoft antispyware, it prevents the browser from getting affected and u can also njoy Flashjet without any problems

    As far ur antivirus is concerned Tweak ur antivirus such that it avoids scaning the file again and again

    update your zonealarm antivirus definiton files or scan the file using AVG (it is a good antivirus).

    I would trust full stream anti-virus products rather than AVG. I use Flashget and yes there are no viruses present.
