    avira reporting TR/Crypt.XPACK.Gen2 in editor and scanner

    Probably a false positive. I can't fire them up to check the version but the date on both exe's is 7/7/2008. Avira version is 9.0.

    It's a false positive in their latest definition set. It actually took the liberty of wiping out HPTuner's on my desktop. It gives you a reason to move to Avast Free in it's stead. Avast can actually remove viruses too, unlike Avira which never seems to be able to fully remove that "one virus that you have"...

    I assume that you can add an exception list or just set it to not scan the HPT directory. Otherwise turn the virus scanner off or get something else like AVG Free.

    Here are the results from VirusTotal - an online scanner - you submit file and it scans the file using all popular virus scanners

    I have no affiliation with any of these companies - this is FYI only
