I tried to download Firefox on my new Asus, and my Titanium Anti Virus program said it was unsafe; what's up with that?

Posted

I just purchased and Asus laptop, using Windows 8. I tried to download Firefox, and was warned (by Titanium) of all types of viruses, etc. etc.. I therefore deleted everything . What is this all about? I have been using Firefox on this computer for some time now and have not encountered any problems.

This may be a false positive.

Did you check the support forum for your software to see if this has been reported by others?
