Hey Chiron, I have a question: How much money do you get from all these Tech Support Alert articles? :p

Just about as much as you do. :dodgy:

Don't worry, I'll hopefully have a new one once Comodo finally lets Comodo Cleaning Essentials out of beta. That is assuming they don't cripple it be removing killswitch from the publically available version. Keep you fingers crossed. :great:

Lol. I got a fair amount of $$ from writing at http://www.brighthub.com/. They are so loaded with ads that I hate to visit it, however (lol) (and all the other writers just focus on money, and don't care a thing about accuracy).

@Chiron
What is the meaning of this msg
"Unfortunately your file could not be executed.

It seems the file you provided is a Windows executable (PE) file, but the program failed to load/start in our analysis system. A typical reason for this error is that some of the required library files (dlls) are missing in our system or the program was not intended to be run in the operating system we are using.

According to the Unix file command your file is of the following type:
PE32 executable (native) Intel 80386, for MS Windows "

I uploaded the driver at anubis (.sys) and found above result .
So unlike virustotal it is only for exe file ?
