    this is a big problem
    we are supposed to trust Afterdawn --- but the suggested software, a firefox multi instance browser (so you can be multiple ppl at same time), turns out to have a trojan horse in it

    why are you suggesting software with virus/trojan horse in it

    more importantly...
    why do you take money to promote without checking the software first?

    Been member since 2006 but you are becoming worse than Micro$hit

    All software is virus checked is my understanding.
    Downloaded & scanned the .exe Scan failed mentions password protected.no it ain't
    Installed full package that took a while..lol..Avast scanned the complete install process,no issue.

    Manual scan of program location folder..no issues

    started an instance of ff v25 no probs detected

    summary:
    It appears from where i'm sitting you are most probably getting false positives from your anitivirus software

    same anti-virus on supposedly same file
    (starts utili some caps and some numbers)
    only difference was first download via link sent to me by AfterDawm
    final download was by going to afterdawn and searching for program (third try to download from this second method)

    oops... first lines are missing...
    i said don't know why didn't work first day while working now
