Why is AVG Free 7.5 all of a sudden identifying old key generators
and associated files as Trojans?

Does it really identify them as "Trojans"? Isn't it rather something like
"potentially unwanted program", "Not-a-virus.KeyGen" or similar?

PS: <preachment mode>No offence intended, but IMHO AVG is right. Key
generators are evil. You don't want them on your PC. If you can't afford
to pay for software, you can still use freeware or open source software.

Users of crackware deserve what they crack and use to crack.

Yeah, if only there wasn't some "collateral damage". The PCs of such
users get infected, get botnetted and they send their spam to *me* (and
to you, and to your neighbour, sister, brother).
