RTW barbarian invasion 1.6

Good evening,

I precise that i have the original game DVD (rome total war gold edition "total war eras" = rome total war 1.5 + barbarian invasion 1.6 + alexander 1.9).

Few weeks ago, i have reinstalled this game from DVD.
Installation worked properly but after, it was impossible launch the game with the DVD inserted in the DVDdrive.

Don't know exactly why, but supposed it was media player or graphic driver problem... but i didn't want install old version of windows media player or nvidia graphic driver just for this game (because last version of media player or graphic driver is better for recent games).

So, for this particular game, i have downloaded gamecopywold nocd :
rome total war 1.5 nocd = works
rome total war alexander 1.9 nocd = works
rome total war barbarian invasion 1.6 = antispyware test has found "trojan cryptXpack", so i didn't use this no-cd and threw it to -> recycle bin. (precision : antispyware doesn't find trojan if we test the compressed zip archive. The trojan is only detected when the .exe unzipped file is directly tested).

I thank you very much for rtw and alexander nocd that balanced my "launch game error".
And so, it seems there is a trojan in .exe of barbarian invasion 1.6 nocd.


Please, what do you think about ? Is there really a trojan in this file ?
I tested again the file and http://virusscan.jotti.org/ told there was a trojan too.
Please, how could this file be cleaned from its trojan ?

Thank in anticipation for your contest.
Good bye.

Give us the direct URL of the VirusTotal report. If none of AVG, Kaspersky and NOD32 reported malware then it's just a false positive. Read the PC Games forum FAQ.

Good morning !

Thank you very much for have fast answered.

Quote FAQ =
Some Game Trainers are sometimes reported to be a Virus or Trojan, in most cases a keylogger called HotKeysHook but in ALL cases this is a false alarm as NONE of the Game Trainers @ GCW contain known malicious code! More info in the PC Games FAQ!

-> I had read the FAQ, but thought the sentence just concerned "game trainers" :
the sentence didn't speak about nocd so thought didn't concern nocd (please, nocd are not similar to game trainers ? ).
_________________________________________________

My free antispyware that first found trojan in this file was "spyware terminator". Screen capture :


And confirmation by 2 tests:
link for jotti scan result
link for virustotal scan result
_________________________________________________

So results are :

[Spyware terminator]
Trojan.Crypt.XPACK.Gen (Trojan)

Jotti
[ClamAV]
2010-08-28 W32.Virut.Gen.D-146
[Ikarus]
2010-08-28 Trojan.Crypt

Virustotal
hnLab-V3 2011.01.02.01 2011.01.02 Win-Trojan/Xema.variant
ClamAV 0.96.4.0 2011.01.03 W32.Virut.Gen.D-146
nProtect 2011-01-03.01 2011.01.03 Trojan/W32.Agent.13701120
_________________________________________________

Please, what do you think about the results ?
Sorry in anticipation if disturb for nothing.

Good night !

You're using the wrong software (or watching the results of the wrong software on online sites). Get a decent virus scanner such as one of the three I mentioned above; these are known for precise scan results, with few false positives and negatives.
