Just wanted you to know that during a complete in depth AVG scan of my PC, it located a virus file who's string included the .321 download that I did a long time ago.
It apparently hid itself in the AppData file on my pc and was caught by AVG just last night. Ph and .321 were in the string name on the isolated virus in the vault. Perhaps it was about to unload itself on to my hard drive but luckily it was caught prior to the detention!
I would suggest running an in depth scan of your pc to make sure that none of you "abusers" like me have also downloaded something we don't want, along with the upgrades.

the OS file itself is an exe, making it the target of a scan. IIRC, other files in there may also set off false alarms once installed, because they may communicate with BB servers.

ive never personally had AVG hit on a BBOS before though or any of its components, but im sure its possible.
Well, whether or not it was bogus, I don't know, but it certainly wasn't your normal BB file. I copied it and looked on my netbook for the same file, and it didn't exist. Bottom line is I dumped it and everything still works fine (thankfully -lol). Unfortunately if Nicocolton is correct, then may have deleted a good file. Oddly enough it also said (besides high threat) that it was corrupted exe file. Humm!
