The file par-io.dll in the top level Daphne directory is being picked up as a possible trojan threat by Kaspersky Internet security 2009. Any thoughts?

Depends on where you downloaded Daphne. If it was from Daphne-emu.com then it is a false positive. If you downloaded it from somewhere else then who knows.

FYI, it also attempts to prevent you from downloading the .zip from teh official site for the same reasons.

You guys might want to send a note to Kaspersky confirming there isn't an issue so new users don't get scared off by the alarm KIS 09 tosses up immediately. Or perhaps there is one and Daphne team isn't aware (unlikely though).

Is this engine that is detecting the DLL as a virus free or do you have to pay for it? The DLL does request low level access to the parallel port (for use with hooking up to a real scoreboard) so maybe this is why it freaks out about it. Or I suppose it really could have a virus, but I really doubt it. I'm not sure what to do about it.

I know this is a year old reply, but since the new kaspersky 2010 still has a beef with this I thought I'd chime in.

Matt: The engine is a paid for, legal and widely used application. It sits at the top of a very short list of top-end internet security suites as reviewed by IT professionals and reliable review sites/magazines. These guys consistently win in shootouts for most threats detected. I contacted several of the support folks at kaspersky and you are absolutely correct. It puts up a red flag because par-io.dll has trojan-esque behavior...namely the low level parallel port access.

Themonkee: Helpful post there. Gee why would I want a security software that actually intelligently analyzes possible risks and has one of the lowest memory footprints out there? After years of using Norton, McAfee, and some free security suites I switched to Kaspersky and couldn't be more pleased.

Thanks for the update RoomTenONine. It is appreciated.

Looks like a great candidate for the FAQ...
