Moosoft's Trojan progam is telling me theres trojan called openwaresiepatch in the KOTOR 1.03 update. Can this be true? Anyone know anything about this?

hmm, curious. Norton hasn't picked up my patch as a trojan. if you got it from the updater, then try getting it from dlx.gamespot.com. they have the patch in the form of an .exe file that doesn't have a trojan in it. :)

I actually got it from lucasarts.com. I know, its strange. I'm running MCafee and Kapersky but neither of them sounded any alarms. But its not a virus and anti-virus software are usually bad at picking up trojans; which is why I also use Moosofts trojan specific program. ;) I will give gamespot a try, thanks stingerhs!

This kind of problems can be encountered if your Anti-virus software is relatively old and if it manages the detection of the "heuristic" viruses. (A.k.a. the new and unknown viruses...)

You sure you found it in the Patch?
Its wierd, openwaresiepatch...

I googled "openwares" as ie= internet explorer so i thought "openwares" was a name of something and guess what? it looks like it is, so what its finding is Openware's Internet explorer patch, which isnt a trojan:
