virus in pv.exe after windose installer run

Postby Bizzaro » 03. February 2005 02:11

this was found in my bin folder in the apache directory of xampp.
Code: Select all
not-a-virus:RiskWare.Tool.PrcView.3725



in the german part of this forum, i found and translated a thread indicating that kaspersky is overreacting, but as im new to xampp i am reluctant to take that at face value.

it was found in "pv.exe" specifically and i am at a loss on how to proceed. google searches only show limited results mostly in non-english languages that google and babelfish are just awful at translating. the kaspersky virus encyclopedia doesnt even list it, and the other "not-a-virus" listings all have ZERO information about them, so i cant even get a feel for the 'family' pedigree it may share.

currently i am skipping the alert with kaspersky, but every attempt to run apache is met with the warning that access to pv.exe is blocked.

any help or guidance apppreciated.
