    I just licensed the bundle, and am trying out my first conversion. I am converting the movie "Silverado" to XBox360 format.

    Shortly after starting the conversion, ThreatFire (a spyware/adware/virus detector; see http://www.threatfire.com/ ) popped up a dialog window:

    I'm guessing it's a false alarm because of the way ThreatFire works, but I *am* a bit nervous...

    :confused:

    Provided you downloaded the file from Slysoft (if you didn't, then you take your chances), that's a false positive.

    I definitely did download from SlySoft.

    I'm not checking the "remember my answer" box when I allow it to proceed, and that dialog keeps popping up.

    I wonder how ThreatFire 'detects' that a program is logging keystrokes...

    /shrug mencoder is safe app.

    There's no virus/trojans/anything nasty in Clonedvd mobile (provided it's downloaded from Slysoft's website).

    I could understand Anydvd triggering that message (again, that would be a false positive) due to it hooking into
    IDvdInfo2::GetDiscID, but Zonealarm overreacts as well (claims anydvd is monitoring keystrokes, when it isn't).
