    Anti-virus identifies FF7 downloader as Adware. False positive?

    I just purchased FF7 but when I hit the download link, my anti-virus get's upset and thinks the downloader is adware.

    The download link I get begins with: d.trymedia.com/d/squarex but what worries me is that a little research tells me that there does exist malware with the 'trymedia' label.

    I'm sure everything is fine and Eset is just throwing up a false positive, but I just wanted to confirm that haven't been 'click-jacked' or anything.

    Thanks for your time =)

    Yes I have had a problem with downloading FF14 from ESET Smart Security 6. I have to disable my firewall forfalse positive to be able to download updates and play FF14. This is the error it gave me before I disabled the firewall ""A problem occurred while updating. Please Restart FF14 XIV: ARR (Beta Version). [11006][20641][20643]"". ESET Smart Security 6 never gave me any warnings or messages of it blocking the game. Also when I click the play on the launcher while my it ESET Smart Security 6 firewall is enabled it will take about 6 to 10 seconds for it to say ""connection error"" or something like that.
    I am not very good with computers and plus I have a learning disorder (It makes it hard for me to understand of computer stuff at times). So I do not know how to config ESET Smart Security 6 firewall. Hoping that I helped in some for you or anyone else in this thread.
