My main interest is in assembly for windows.
When I attempted to download the zipped file for windows,
my anti-virus monitor (--> kaspersky)
would not allow me to do so.

The AV program indicated this:
Quote:
Virus Scan:
Detected: Trojan.Win32.Buzus.djmn \EXAMPLES\DIALOG\DIALOG.EXE

Could someone please check this out.

If it (the program DIALOG.EXE) is clean (which means that kaspersky is wrong in its identification)
is it possible to exclude the "DIALOG.EXE" from the
windows version, so that I may download it?

Thanks,
marc

Looks like it is time to delete your AV program. Wink

If you want to compare how your AV program compares to other AVs you can visit here:

dialog.exe is a simple application that creates a user-defined dialog box, maybe your AV interpret this capability as a virus.

Looks like Kaspersky is a bit fussy:

revolution: it's hard to entirely avoid false positives - and personally I'd rather have a few false positives than not catching a piece of real malware. As long as the false positive ratio doesn't go entirely bananas, of course. It's been a while since I used any protection (although I just installed Microsoft Security Essentials to see if it's any good), but back then Kaspersky was pretty decent; that and NOD32 were the only two AV programs a few years back that were worth anything.
