        I read a couple of different forums looking for no deposit chips and found one for Club Player that I hadn't seen before. I clicked on the download link and my newly updated virus protection software opened up a new window saying "riskware blocked". I clicked on the more info button and this is what came up about Club Player "This virus is highly destructive, and may trash the FAT. Before doing so, however it will offer the user to play a game- if he wins, the virus will leave the FAT unchanged." In other words if you don't win you are a double loser because not only have you lost your money but you downloaded a virus that will totally mess with your system. This came up with another casino as well, Jackpot Capitol.

        You may need to change the settings on your new virus program.  Even tho some virus detection programs like to read something into online casino software, I've been downloading & playing at online casinos for over 10 yrs now, including both the casinos you mentioned, with never a problem.  I run Norton Pro, always have, and have never had a virus or instrusion of any type.  (knock on )

        I have Norton and I never got a message that any casino had a virus, but I always hear people saying that they get them.

        I live in western Canada and the internet provider I use is Shaw and it comes with F-Secure and Super Anti Spyware which is a program that banks and other high secure companies use. I didn't even download the casino but it left a cookie on my computer with the virus that kept opening a window asking me if I wanted to download the casino, but my antivirus kept on blocking it.

        For those of you who think oh its just malware well ummm read the following:



        winnow.malware.35001
        1272651167.onlinevegascasino.exe... 04/30/10 a-squared[Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banker!IK]
        AntiVir[GAME/Casino.Gen]
        eSafe[Win32.Banker]
        Ikarus[Trojan-Banker.Win32.Banker]
        Sunbelt[Trojan.Win32.Generic!BT]

        Trojan horses are designed to allow a hacker remote access to a target computer system. Once a Trojan horse has been installed on a target computer system, it is possible for a hacker to access it remotely and perform various operations. The operations that a hacker can perform are limited by user privileges on the target computer system and the design of the Trojan horse.
        Operations that could be performed by a hacker on a target computer system include:

        •Use of the machine as part of a botnet (i.e. to perform spamming or to perform Distributed Denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks)
        •Data theft (e.g. passwords, credit card information, etc.)
        •Installation of software (including other malware)
        •Downloading or uploading of files
        •Modification or deletion of files
        •Keystroke logging
        •Viewing the user's screen
        •Wasting computer storage space
        •Crashing the computer
        Trojan horses require interaction with a hacker to fulfill their purpose, though the hacker need not be the individual responsible for distributing the Trojan horse. In fact, it is possible for hackers to scan computers on a network using a port scanner in the hope of finding one with a Trojan horse installed, which the hacker can then use to control the target computer.[1]

        A trojan differs from the virus in that only a file specifically designed to carry it can do so

        I have downloaded all of these casinos at one point or another, and I have NEVER gotten a message that there was a virus. I am surprised because I thought Norton was always ontop of things. Well I guess not. What Virus Protection do you use Spade?

        Spade, where did that info come from?  What IP is that?  Is it their download IP, and if so, did it come from a link on their website or an email?

        Mommy, to the best of my knowledge, Norton Pro also picks up trojans, which are not the same as a virus.

        I'm not trying to be blindly skeptical, I just hate to see people being scared by misinformation.  I'm not a techie at all, but, as I said before, I've been doing this for over 10 yrs, and I've downloaded & installed hundreds of online casinos.  I've seen these "virus" & "malware" warnings come up on boards many, many times over the years, but it's never been proven.  It's always (to the best of my knowledge) been an overzealous anti-virus/anti-spyware program.

        After 4 days without my computer I am back up and running. That is how long it took a technician to get rid of the backdoor.generic virus dropped on my computer by Bet Phoenix and the Trojan.Generic dropped on my computer by Cleopatra's Palace. These literally shut me down. Absolutely nothing would work unless I was in safe mode. Personally I don't think the free chips are worth chancing having your life messed with by intrusive hackers disguised as legitimate casinos. Just my opinion. Proceed cautiously with a lot of these casinos.

        Bet Phoenix itself does NOT have a virus in its casino. Maybe where you downloaded it from had a virus.

        The casino software does have "trojans" but its the way these software works to install updates and such they are not harmfull in anyway for the users aslong you download from the original webpages.

        I get plenty of warnings with my malware filter when opening any rtg casino but dont worry.

        Most casinos I have no problem downloading, but GO and Online Vegas- all the vegas tech sites download after I turn off norton, but then won't access the casino once download is complete.  Not sure what is up with that, but Norton doesn't like them and apparently something else on my computer won't let me go there even after download is successful.

        Dont trust norton at all its been one of the worst programs in many years alot of fake warnings, you should really download "microsoft security essentials" its totally free and works amazing.

        Besides norton takes too many system resources to run slows down your pc alot.
