Default Trojan detected durimg installation

Hello I am new and I installed Everquest Titanium from some disks i had, when i "extracted the Project 1999 required game file changes" to the EQ directory, my mcafee virus software quarantined a file and said it contained a Trojan. Can anyone give me any advice on this and tell me if this file is important or not?

The infected file seems to be dsetup.dll. Thanks! [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Add an exception to McAfee for dsetup.dll.

Ya the file is important. You cant play P99 without it. Its P99's effective, yet controversial, anti cheat / boxing deterrent

Maybe someone should have mentioned it's a false positive and doesn't steal your personal info lol

This man is correct, the DLL sniffs in the background picking up things like the processes running on the machine, Computer name, Where your EQ folder is located on the machine and much more I am guessing.The reason p99 is better at detecting cheaters/boxers than most MMO's is because what they are doing would not fly with a huge gaming company. Everyone who plays on this server has to trust the staff not to abuse this information/power in order to keep our server free of cheaters.

Windows Defender doesn't scan dsetup.dll as a virus. I dunno why everyone wants to use McAfee/Norton/Avast/AVG etc., I've never used those and I haven't had any virus troubles since Windows XP.

I guess I really should have defined "personal information"

They're not stealing from your bank or paypal or spreading your personal porn collection around.

It doesn't even run until you tell it to run.
