Hi,

When I try to download update wizard from your site, or if I try to run this update wizard for Bascom-avr update, my antivirus program blocks this wizard and delete it, and write:

P2p-Worm.Win32.SpyBot!IK
Deleted...

So, is it only false alarm, or this update wizard contains a worm?

you can check for virus here :

Here is a report :

A good scanner will not report it as a virus. Update your scanner and send a report to the manufacturer. The reason you get false positives is that the EXE is packed to make it smaller. Some virus makers do this too and since scanning is done with signatures, other software get marked as a virus too.

But to be clear : there is no virus.
