Vdubmod is adware?

Postby AngelOfTheDark » Thu Nov 16, 2006 1:07 am

Has anyone else gotten the message that virtualdubmod is adware, or did I download a bad version or something? I stuck the program in my virus chest for the time being just to be safe. I can't afford to mess up my computer, even if I am replacing it soon. So, I just want to know, is it safe? Is this normal or should I find another place to download it?

Your scanner is malfunctioning. VDubMod, if you got it from SoruceForge or some other reputable place, is not adware.

Hmm, I just uninstalled and reinstalled my scanner recently because the license had run out and had to be renewed. It should be working fine. Maybe I put the security settings too high? :? I actually downloaded vdubmod from the amvapp package, so it should be alright, then, right?

UPDATE: I tried that site you mentioned and everything went fine this time. Thanks for telling me about that. Though, someone may want to check the one in amvapp for adware, just in case it's not just my computer.

The problem is with changes to the way scanners detect adware, not VDM itself. The version in the AMVApp is perfectly safe.
