Hi all
I am trying out an online casino to play poker, and it requires a file download. Now when i try and download it my bitdefender blocks it's it - says adware.casino.R. Now is this harmful or can i install it. I uploaded the file to virustotal.com and some anti-virus like nod32 and symantec dont detect it. Thanks in advance
maynard

Also 2 of the anti-virus programs says not a virus, but i want to be sure if i can install it and what is the risks?
Thanks

Hi Maynard.

Can you please send me a Private Message with the link to the download.

Did any other scanner at VT show it as malware?

Pacific Poker is clean, but SuperAntiSpyware blocked the installation of Casino Games due to embedded Adware.

Do you know of any other online poker games (i dont want for money you know the ones you can go on for free with other players) that there is that is safe to install. Or do you think all of them will be like this one?

Thanks for all the help.

i had to disable my anti-virus just to download the file to submit to virustotal. (i always go save rather than install it is safer :) )
