    I've downloaded and run Spybot 1.3rc3. I've repeatedly come up with Dropper. I've run it in Safe Mode and it doesn't remove it; It comes back after a reboot. Mostly I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced this with the same version of SpyBot. Also, NOD32 hasn't detected it. The only info I've come across has been that it's a trojan. Maybe it's a false positive. Just wanted to see if anyone else has seen this with the latest release.

    I`ve just downloaded that myself not over 4 hrs ago. Didn`t run it in Safe Mode, never had with the old version, when I did run it, I came across Dropper, I deleted it, and then immunized as per Spybot instructions. I just ran it again after reading your thread, did not come up.

    It seems to reappear after a couple of restarts. I've been reading a couple of other threads and, it seems, everyone's getting "Dropper". Must be a false positive.
