    I had downloade Smitfraudfix.zip and saved it for future use.

    This morning I did a Panda Activescan of My Computer folder.

    Activescan found Smitfraudfix.zip and deleted it saying it containe the virus
    W32/Bagle.pwdzip .

    Is this a false posiitive ??????

    You should not download Smitfraudfix for "future use" as it gets updated quite frequently and you will most likely have an out of date version.

    Thanks to both. I guess Panda doesn't like what it didn't create.
