If I go the page for the game ‘eXtreme Crossword’ my virus checker picks up a virus. Just figure someone should check it out.

What virus program are you using? I hope you don’t say it’s Norton… And it might be just because Flash will edit the save files or something, but it should not be bad. Take a screenshot?

I use Avast.

It’s complaining about “SWF:Downloader” which it flags as a trojan.

Avast is really bad as well…. I would suggest turning off it’s firewalls.

2 good programs to use are: AVG and Spyware Terminator.

BOTH are free.

Edit: free.grisoft.com is a spot to get AVG for free.

Edit edit: A message from one of my friends on this topic “Better yet spend 39 bucks for Kaspersky 6.0. They update viruses signatures once every hour and have over 300k virus definitions as opposed to others at 99k”

Edit edit edit (My first triple edit): If you happen to use zonealarm, GET RID OF IT.

No avg is way worse then avast _ spybot search and destroy is better then spywear termanator and yes zonealarm is worthless and bad for your comp

Avast has done a good job, no complaints here. Why do you suggest it’s so bad?

You can go safely without any virus protection if you’re smart about what you do.

Avast is terrible. Really. It is a slow software that has very few virus definitions and doesn’t really help.

Edit: I always forget to log out of my alts :P

Actually Avast is better than any other free one out there, IE its not bloatware.

AVG and Avast fight… Use F-Secure or something.

A virus :O

AVG vs. avast! 3… 2… 1… FIGHT! Avast has a simple user interface, (seems like a media player, in fact) AVG has popularity on it’s side.

So what about “SWF:Downloader”? Safe or not?

Ok i think this thread has turned a bit into spam he warned about a virus _ he didnt ask about what virus protections best i think Avast is better because AVG let everything through for me hat just my opinion but it doesnt matter rlly this is getting to be an old thread
