Dear Switch team and forum members,
I was going to download switch from Download.com, however, I saw the post of this guy then I got hesitated. Since I don't know if what he is saying is true for not, I didn't want to risk my computer getting this virus that he claimed to "came" with Switch.
That's why I was hoping someone here can tell me if he has valid reason to say what he said, here is his post below:
Pros: this program works great and does what it says. but
Cons: after about 10 conversions McAfee poped up and it seems that i was make my own virus for my computer and didn't even make the .wav
Exploit-LoadImgAPI is the virus that was put on my computer. good thing i had the lates .dat files on my pc. seems to be a new virus.
hope you have virus scan!!!!
seems that people didn't use that alot before they rated it so high. or they are infected and didn't know it.
information about the virus in the program.
