Flaged as Trojan by Trend Micro
« on: December 05, 2010, 06:35:08 AM »
This post is directed to Mouser. I have been using screenshotcaptor for some time and it's a great proigram. Trend Micro flagged it as a trojan. Is this a false positive?

Yes, it is.  I'm going to assume that DcKeyHk.dll is the library that handles the hotkeys that you can define in SC.  Hotkeys are handled by a keyboard hook and it's this hook that usually creates false positives like this.  Mouser will surely tell me if I'm incorrect, though.   :D

that's exactly right.. and this this is file that lazy antivirus programs tend to falsely flag as dangerous when they do this.
it's a false positive, a false alarm.

thatnks for letting us know -- if anyone has a trend micro install, please report it to them as a false positive.
