Flagged as a trojan.
While unzipping grub2win.zip I get a message from avira "TR/Graftor.142644.68" was found in grub2win.exe. Is that true? What to do? ?? hwsn EDIT: Just testing another download from www.com-magazin.de: the size of the zipped file is now only 4.347kB and it is clean!!!! ***** The first from sourcefourge.net was 4.652kB an hosted the trojan above!! Can we trust on clean files at sourceforge??????
no basic usage instruction
I'd like to say that it's a great piece of software but, sadly, can't as it absolutely refused to install on my 256GB SSD C: drive. All I could get out of it was a number of error message boxes saying that various files/directories could not be created. My system is Windows 7 Home Premium, at latest fix level.
