Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Please Help Me: Virus?

    Okay so I took out another book from the library and it says to download Dev-C++ I did that and it works just fine. But after playing around with a console project ThreatFire (my security program) says that there is a high malicious risk with a program called LD.EXE. This is a program that I think came along with Dev-C++. Should I get rid of Dev-C++, or should I allow this program to continue running?

    Quote from Appendix B of C++ for Dummies:


    -Turn off any anti-virus software that you may have running. Installers sometimes make your computer incorrectly believe that it is being infected by a virus. (turn the anti-virus software back on later.)
    Is this the file that they are telling me to let run because it really doesn't have a virus? Or should I kill this program and all of the Dev-C++ applications?

    Please, I really appreciate your help!

    Dev-C++ for sure does not contain viruses. Google gave me nothing when I googled ls.exe. You can try Visual Studio Express (free) if you want to get rid of that warning.
    If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Okay thanks. I was just really not sure. I Googled LD.EXE and all the results said that it was part of a Trojan. So I got really nervous. Thanks for clearing that up for me
