I've just bought a 3128 - USB PIC Programmer and am having the same problems with the software installation on windows vista. Both microbrn and fixhex2 are detected as trojans and can't be run. Would it be possible to get the uncompressed versions?

I have a Kit 149 and microburn-v150807 Microburn is running on an hp laptop with WinXP SP2 loaded.I am using the USB interface to the board.This thing is REALLY tempermental. I am programming 12F675s, and the act of removing the chip after programming from my ZIF|
socket is enough to get microburn to hang on the very next read or write to a new chip. At that point, I have to kill the microburn process. If that doesn't happen, I get the "couldn't reset programmer" message.

Try removing the USB driver completely and re-installing the FTDI driver as per the install guide. It is important that you follow the guide carefully.

Where did you purchase the programmer?

I use AVG Free for anti-virus. Imagine my dismay when my most used program (aside from Adobe Reader and Windows Media Player) is marked as having a trojan called Agent.YEV. Is there a trojan packaged in this software that nothing has noticed for the past 6 months that I have been using the programmer? Would it be safe to take this program out of my virus vault?

There is no trojan horse inside the program. AVG is reporting a 'false positive', caused by the fact that the EXE file have been compressed.

If you email me direct I will send you the uncompressed versions.

Download AdAware or Malwarebytes and run a full scan - those programs can be installed with an antivirus. Also open the Task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and go to the processes tab. Have a look at the processes tab and research the processes onhttp://www.fileinspect.com - it will tell you if the process is malware or not.
