Just a FYI.
I love FolderSize, absolutely awesome app.
I was speaking with a Tech at GameTap (that Turner broadcasting game service), and they were looking over my DXDiag, and told me that FolderSizeSvc.exe was a trojan.
I informed him of the application, and its function, and that his software most likely was reporting a false positive. He didnt seem inclined to belive me though, CustomerService techs are so arrogant some time.
Did the Customer Service at GameTap give any reason why they thought FolderSizeSvc.exe was a trojan? Could they point to any bit of the code that made their analysis suspect this as being true?
If there is something in FolderSize (which I also only found last month and really like) which triggers this/these trojan warnings, and can be re-written to look different, then changing FolderSize to look less threatening would be a good idea. We then still have FolderSize, and our anti-virus/anti-spam software dosen't keep poping up warnings.
BTW, my systems with McAfee, Sophos, and PestPatrol (an older version) don't popup any warnings.
It's possible someone could be distributing an infected version of FolderSizeSvc.exe. I don't sign my builds, but I think that's silly to pay for. If you really want security, compile it yourself.
I hate all those anti-virus/anti-spam programs. I find their behaviour at least as intrusive as any virus I've encountered.
