[Help] BOClean detects Keyfinder as trojan

Alright, I’m at a stand still here and I have a problem. This harddrive I have is a 20 GB and I got a 320 GB harddrive. The 20 GB I know has several problems and just doesnt have the space I need. Now I was going to install my Windows XP Home on the new 320 GB HD but the key on the side of my pc is ripped and I cant read it.

So I was told to try Keyfinder to locate the key in the registry so I could use it on my new HD. But when I ran it BOClean gave me a popup about a trojan when I opened it. What do I use other than that to get the key, that will not be a trojan in BOClean? Any suggestions?

If you are certain that it is not a trojan like BoClean says I would feel confident in excluding the program from BoClean scanning. To do that use the program excluder on the BoClean main menu. Just drag and drop the icon of the program, probably the .exe into the BoClean excluder screen.

If you are not sure whether this file is safe or not consider testing it using http://www.virustotal.com/ or http://virusscan.jotti.org/ to test it. In addition, if you think it’s a false positive submit it to malwaresubmit [ at ] avlab.comodo.com Zip it and password protect it with the usual password of infected. You may want to title it false positive. This should help some.

As a last resort, if you’re sure its a false positive I’d just exit BoClean so that you can try and find the key. Let me know if this works out.


Hi FFKefka77 :slight_smile:

Some programs can behave like trojans, so it is possible that CBOClean flags them :slight_smile: But if you only want to retrive a Windows XP key for a new installation, I wouldn’t worry about it :wink:
