    I tried to load the ARRL General Exam Review CD software (from the General Class License Manual -- previously sealed) on my Win-7 machine and the virus checker went crazy. I couldn't get it loaded & finally decided maybe that was wise, so I booted Ubuntu, but it wouldn't run under Wine either.

    I just want to know if anyone else has run into this issue, or maybe my Win-7 settings are screwed up. I think I'm ready to take the exam anyway, so I don't absolutely have to use it.

    No idea, but if you visit and take the online test a couple of times you should be ready to go. I am sure that there is no virus, but being safe is smart. Good luck on your upgrade.

    I didn't get any virus messages when I installed mine, but it did launch an autoupdater right after instalation. Maybe the autoupdate portion of the program is sending up virus flags as it tries to make a connection.
