    I have noticed that my anti virus and spyware programs always find things after I have downloaded a Casino and this applies to accredited Casinos too.
    Should we be worried when we find;
    Heuristic.Win32.Dialer c:\program files
    and many others after downloading Casino software?
    I could send a huge list of Casinos that my antispyware or virus protection do not like.

    Do you care in the results of an heuristic scan? :what:

    Don't worry, usually antivirus match casinos with dialers.

    Most likely a false positive. Why don't you submit it to your anti-virus company for evaluation?

    Most any program that "dials out" from your computer will raise a red flag with your anti virus program (if your anti virus program is any good).

    heuristic.Win32.Dialer associated with the AOL 9.0 file called acsd.exe will cause a false positive in some anti-virus programs like the free version of AVG.

    Thanks everybody, no need to worry then.
    My anitivirus is the full version of AVG.
    It is most unhappy with grand virtual casinos and I have to disable the resident shield even to download it :eek2:

    apparently, AVG and grand virtual don't mix.
    from what i've heard, problem is the false positives AND the fact AVG looks down at all casinos and labels them on the same scum level as hackers...
