Webroot says Core Temp has malware?
I recently downloaded Core Temp to monitor my CPU more closely, and Webroot always says it has malware. There are a lot of other people who download this with no problems, and I was just wondering if I should be concerned, or if Webroot is just giving me a false positive.

I have had Webroot remove it for now, but im using Core Temp for Rainmeter now and it would be great to see my CPU temps :D
If i cant download it, thats fine, i was just kind of wondering if anyone else has this problem. :8
Welcome to the COmmunity Forums.
Is this what you are seeing:
If that is it then it is telling you that there is an issue with the website that you are being directed to when you attempt to use the download link from the Core Temp author's website. That could be the false positive, i.e. the Web Threat Sheild determination rather than the actual download?
Nic. I think you are right!

Could you please tell us what it says?
Remove: coretemp.exe in c:userscalvindownloads
EDIT: Nic says it has been has been approved, so i think the problem may be solved.
Now that is very interesting as I advanced through the Web Threat Shield warning to download the installer and I am not getting a peep from WSA...even when I right click and select 'Scan with Webroot'...I am therefore wondering if yo uhave been victim of a redirect given that I am downloadng from the manufacturer's website using the main downlaod link on the main web page.
Go figure that? :S
And it looks like the situation has been taken care of , thank you TylerM!
