trojan agent dropper in new uninstaller

re: v 5.35 (x86) - May 14 2007

trojan finder "The Cleaner" at http://moosoft.com/ finds a trojan "agent dropper" in the uninstaller directory of winamp. Is this intentional? Why would winamp leave behind another running new program on uninstall?

That's just plain nonsense. It's a false-positive. Ignore it. Winamp contains absolutely NO malware, trojans, etc.

No need to crosspost either.

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

I did not crosspost (quote did not copy that comment I guess).
