    Just a heads up. I cannot download and install the latest version of System Ninja.  Virus checkers scream and I get a message that a trojan or virus is detected in the .exe file.

    This is happening on my machine running Windows 10 and Norton.

    It is also happening on my neighbor’s machine running Windows 8.1 and Avast.

    This is a reaction to the advertising module, not the virus.

    The advertising module included in the installer is being flagged by at least 14 security vendors. It’s not immediately obvious what has caused this spike in detections, however we’re working with the provider (and their competitors) to get this resolved.

    Rest assured there is nothing harmful in System Ninja, though it might be wise to avoid accepting the installer offer until we can get more details.

    Just to provide a quick update: We are no longer bundling 3rd-party software with System Ninja. You should no longer receive any warnings from your security product.
