I've been looking alternative lightweight operating systems for project I'm playing with and came across Kolibri. As an former assembler programmer (IBM 370) I can appreciate the advantages of writing an OS in it.

But, when searching for reviews of it, I found two references to there being a trojan in the download. See - ... 5&start=10

and ... 7&from=rss

Is this a false positive or is there something wrong with this release? I can see a lot of people being put of by this.

I've now downloaded it myself and my anti-virus (AVG Free) does indeed find trojan Small.AEK in 9x2klbr.exe

I dont believe it is actually a virus.

Btw, You dont need this .exe to test kolibrios on an emulator or on real hw, all you need is kolibri.img, the image of the floppy

good luck

It is false positive. But not only AVG thinks so: avast "detects" suspicious files in 9x2klbr.exe ("Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}") and ldklbr.sys ("Win32:Rootkit-gen [Rtk]"). BTW, sources for both of them can be found in the distributive sources. (9x2klbr is additionally packed with the compressor fsg.)

In any case, as hidnplayr has already said, you can simply delete entire folders 9x2klbr and nt2klbr - the system itself does not need it.

I don't understand whether your problem is related to the false positive in the earlier KolibriOS distributions or not.
If yes read previous posts in this thread, if not
