Problems with VideoPad Download


Recommended Posts


I do not know if there is a virus problem with this particular file or if there is a false virus warning by my anti virus software. I have downloaded some of your software today to try it out but I encountered a problem with my Comodo Internet Security Suite issuing a virus warning when attempting to download VideoPad. I did not encounter any difficulties with any other file on your servers so am concerned that this one may have gotten a virus infection some how. If this is not the case I will try and re-download the file, but would hate to get a major virus infection on my new Vista install. If you guys know for sure that there are no problems with any of your software that is available for download perhaps you may want to contact Comodo and loge a complaint about their software giving a false virus warning about your software, http://www.comodo.com/

VideoPad - False Positive for Virus, Trojans or Malware




Hi Robert,





I know you are getting a false positive on Comodo.




  2. NCH Software makes sure their audio software is free from virus', malware, or trojans before software is released.
  3. Google scans NCH Software's website at least once a week to check for virus', malware, and trojans and they do not detect malware on NCH Software's Website, which includes all of NCH Software's download files.
  4. Below, I included a report from VirusTotal that can check the most popular anitvirus packages at once including Comodo. No Virus, Malware, or Trojans were found from AVG, Symantec, or McAfee and many others.
  5. VideoPad is listed on all the major software download sites, which thoroughly tests software before listing a product to protect their customers.
  6. VideoPad continues to receive 5 Star Awards and Editor's Picks from popular software sites.




Therefore, I think it is save to conclude you have a false positive virus.

VideoPad is a Virus Free Program


As a follow up, on Monday July 12th, Virus Total reported a 6/42 for the VideoPad Video Editing Software download file that did not include Comodo reporting a false positive. A-Squared, VBA32, Ikarus, Kaspersky, and 2 from McAfee calling out some form of a Trojan Win32. I submitted false positive reports to Ikarus, VBA32 and McAfee. I did not submit one to A-Squared because their false positive looked like it came from the Ikarus database and Kaspersky I believe piggybacks from other databases too. After they checked the VideoPad software more thoroughly, I received a positive response they would remove the false positive from their database. The next day our Virus Total report for VideoPad was 0/42.


This morning, I submitted 375 files to Quick Heal because their anti-virus software is the worst anti-virus program I've seen for flagging false positives. If you use one of the off brand products, I would like to hear about your experience with false positives.
