todays morning definition updates from grisoft did the mess, the newer
update just recently fixed the problem again.


to everbody posting bullshit about dnetc: get a life

dnetc is nothing harmful and legit software. and now its being regarded
as legit by grisoft/avg again too.

grisoft replied to various tech-support-requests and addimitted that the
did identify dnetc as a false positiv and were fixing it with the next
update (which they delivered by now).

doh.

I did a search for dnetc on my pcs, found dnetc.mcg in mcafee quarantine
folder.
I haven't used McAfee for a couple of years

I don't even know what it is.
