Windows 7: Win32/Wapomi.E detected in Superantispyware?

Win32/Wapomi.E detected in Superantispyware?

I just downloaded and installed SuperantiSpyware from their site and also downloaded the manual virus definitions installer from here SUPERAntiSpyware FAQ - My computer can't connect to the Internet. How can I use SUPERAntiSpyware to scan it?

But when I tried to install the definitions my AVG came up and said that it detected a Win32/Wapomi.E virus, it then removed it successfully.

Is this really a virus I got from the Superantispyware website or is AVG giving a false positive?

I think its highly probable its a false positive from AVG - to double check, scan using another AV product. If it comes up clean, uninstall AVG before scanning with SAS.

SuperAntiSpyware detected Trojan.Dropper/Win-NV
I just ran SuperAntiSpyware and it detected the listed threat. I did some searching with Google and it seems this has happened to others and all with similar results that I am having. MSE detects nothing, Malwarebytes detects nothing. :geek: I would like some opinions, please :)
