GData detects a trojan in WinPatrol before GData has finished updating its installation. It detects instantly upon installation before I even have a chance to configure GData. (To confuse me, the "virus" is in WinPatrol's Hosts file and GData also locks and cripples HostsMan which is very weird because GData support says the Hosts file is excluded from scanning by default).
Anyhow, it's the Avast engine (not the Bit Defender engine) that is detecting the trojan in WinPatrol. I know a lot of folks here use both Avast and WinPatrol so are you all seeing this also? I've had to uninstall GData twice now because of this. GData is set by default to disinfect but I tell it to ignore the file. I don't know if GData's locking HostsMan has anything to do with it detecting this trojan in WinPatrol's Hosts file or not but I suspect the two are somehow connected.
Like i said in another thread it's your Winpatrol host file that is being detected as the trojan not Winpatrol.--

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. (Hmm)
I have enemies? Good. That means I've stood up for something, sometime in my life.
