    "if your antivirus detect it that means youranti virus is working fine." So, I would assume that if it was not detected the anti virus is not working. The question is what is this--is it a virus. If it is not a true virus, detection becomes a problem

    My only problem with that approach is that if you run the scan, but the software misses something, you are left with false results. I will not introduce a virus into my system. You pick what you like and watch it over time.
