I think this screenshot speaks for itself. Craig (or anyone else at Nero) want to explain?

This computer has been up and running for nearly 3 days. I've been away from it since last night so some time between then and now, NeroMobile decided it needed to download some adware.

Here's some info on it:

Hi Ian,

We've been in contact with Symantec. They say their software has been detecting it as a false positive. Virus definitions on or after 7/16/2007 Rev 21 should handle the Nero software correctly.

Regards,

Craig

Ah.. that's probably why I haven't seen it since then. Thanks Craig!
