According to my McAfee, the latest version of Song and Silence has a generic.dx trojan attached to it. Does anyone know where I can get a "clean" copy?

These sort of warnings have been cropping up all over the place with G3 mods. Kapersky (I think) at least, have admitted error, so I would be surprised if it were an actual virus McAfee is finding. It may be because the unpacker contains an unverified executable (the WeiDU installer).

Besides this one and the Kivan mod, I haven't had any other problem, and I've downloaded and installed almost every other mod on this board, so it seems reasonable to doubt that it's WEIDU. (Perhaps this is another point in favor of ZIP and RAR over EXE....)

reconfirmed - no virus present in current version. AVG. False positive detecting setup-mymod.exe is likely the culprit.
