My anti-virus says it's found a virus in atprogram.exe, so it has deleted it. Any suggestions on how to just get a clean, fresh atprogram.exe? Or do I just have to re-install the whole of Atmel Studio :?:

If it's literally just that EXE I'll PM you a copy.

EDIT: you have mail.

Thanks :D The antivirus doesn't like that, either! :roll: So I guess it's just a false alarm?

For reference. 

 

I just tested a new install of avrstudio 6 on a VM, and then sent this file online to metascan and virus total.

 

The only scanner in their lists is Baidu that reports it as a Trojan.Backdoor.Heur.gen.

So it looks like most people have updated their databases. 

 

I sent a report to Baidu about this today.
