Free AP Promos

Trojan Horse Detected
I've been through the free AP promotions to add some more AP to my leftover points so I could buy the Super Haste pack. I did a few and all was well until I downloaded E-Mule to get AP after install is complete.

On the promotion display it says "free of Spyware and Malware" but upon installing my antivirus blocked a Trojan Horse.

This was probably unknown to AGE as they were probably not well informed about the product advertised and only E-Mule's developpers/advertisers/product managers can be held responsible.

I wouldn't suggest installing eMULE (filesharing p2p program) it does contain adware, which is what your AV detected.

I'm aware of that, it's exactly why I downloaded it. I had to test if it was true that they'd claim it to be free of Malware.
