    Reserved keyword?

    I downloaded the file crc32.exe from CMD Tools. Whenever I try to run it in a command prompt window, I get the following:

    [C:cmdTools] crc32
    4NT: (Sys) Access is denied.
    "C:cmdToolscrc32.exe"

    Similar problems trying to copy/paste the file. Is CRC32 a reserved keyword, or otherwise a no-no for a filename?

    Re: Reserved keyword?

    I have no problem running the exe:
    <code>
    C:>crc32 boot.ini
    1137130761
    C:>crc32.exe boot.ini
    1137130761
    C:>
    </code>
    Right-click crc32.exe in Windows Explorer and select Properties from the popup menu.
    Is there an Unblock button near the bottom of the dialog? If so, click the button.

    NaDa I'm afraid. Nothing unusual under properties, and the other utils on that site seem to work OK. File size checks out OK too.

    I see that you're using the 4NT command line processor. What happens if you try the same in Windows XP's native command prompt?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by AlanMiller on 03-Feb-08 00:04. )</P>Good thought, but same message, "Access is denied." <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> Just for the heck, I'll try a reboot to safe mode.

    Edit - <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>... AVG is throwing a warning, picking it up as a trojan horse. Runs OK in safe mode, without AVG loaded. I'll write to them (again) telling them of another false positive. It bemuses me as to why AVG provides an "Ignore" button but then proceeds to prevent execution regardless. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Glad you found the cause - antivirus would have been my next suggestion.

    <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> It was a little strange though. I received no indication from AVG that the file was under suspicion, only the "access denied" from Windows, until I really started fiddling about with it. Only then did I get the threat popup. Anyways, solved (sort of).

    Re: Reserved keyword?

    But you can't complain about the good service:

    Monday, 4 February 2008 2:38 AM
    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Thank you for your email.

    Unfortunately, the previous virus database might have detected the mentioned virus on some legitimate applications. We can confirm that it is a false alarm. We are immediately releasing a new virus update that removes the false positive detection on this file. Please update your AVG and check your files again.

    If you need to restore deleted files from AVG Virus Vault you can do it this way:
    - Open AVG Virus Vault (Start -> Programs -> AVG 7.5 -> AVG Virus Vault).
    - Locate the file that was incorrectly removed.
    - Right click on it and choose the "Restore File(s)" option.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    Best regards,

    Lubomir Latta
    AVG Technical Support
