Problem with HD+ Mod update / HD_UPD.dll in quarantine
since I updated the HD+ mod to version 5.0 RC76 (via the update-button in the launcher) a problem occured that never happened to me before. My antivirus software (BullGuard) quarantined the "HD_UPD.dll" file. The reason according to the report was that it allegedly contains the malware "Trojan.GenericKDS.32961950" and that the infected process is "Explorer.exe". I was guessing that it must have been a false positive so I removed the file from the quarantine and put it back into my Heroes 3 folder but BullGuard put it immediately back under quarantine.
The result is that I cannot update my HD+ mod because that .dll-file is needed for updates and without it obviously nothing happens when I click on the update-button in the launcher.
Has somebody else encounter this problem yet and if yes, how did you solve it? Or do you think that there really is a chance that the file contains said malware? I remember having read that the HD mod and/or HotA are prone to creating alarms/false positives.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Edit: Just to let you know that I solved the problem by continuously removing the file from the quarantine. After a couple of times BullGuard did not put it back in there. Who knows why...
