    Folder Size Personal install kill by Trojan install

    In the most recent version of Windows Secrets Newsletter (Issue 472 2015-03-12), Lincoln Spector suggests Folder Size Free and Folder Size Personal as a way to clean up old files.

    After a little while of looking around, I decided to buy Folder Size Personal. As I tried to install it, Comodo kill the installation due to detection of the app trying to install TrojWare.Win32.TrojanDownloader.Small.ET@84493725

    Comodo is normally pretty capable but it can on occasion identify false problems. Anyone have experience with this situation?

    Is Folder Size Personal coming from creator's web site? Yes, my Comodo, Emsisoft, Avast -- all generate a few what I believe are false positives. As NCIS Gibbs does, go with your gut & common sense. If you have a known-good & reliable source, a known-good & reliable program picked out, add such to the green list; custom or advance install and watch for checkboxes of stuff you do not want. Run regular weekly scheduled scans, keep a well-balanced, well-configured mult-layered defense.

    Roland, yes downloaded from their registration download link at mindgems.com. Do you know how to contact any of the Windows Secrets folks, particularly Lincoln Spector?
