Starting the Desura-Client with standard-settings will drop some some dlls into the folder
on a Windows-System.
The dlls have numeric filename-prefixes, but it’s always the same numbers (so I guess each dll maps to an installed game).
For some days now, everytime I started the Desura-Client, Avira warned about a Trojan:
TR/Kazy.65525.12 in C:\ProgramData\Desura\DesuraApp\GDF\54528904790048.dll and in C:\ProgramData\Desura\DesuraApp\GDF\RCX3C2D.tmp
It was always the same dll-filename.
According to the Desura-Support, this is a false positive. (Thus it’s actually not a Trojan according to the Desura-Support)
However: I was wondering what these dlls are for. Apparently these dlls are used to display the games in the start-menu -> games folder.
Checking the option “disable windows games explorer” in the client settings solved the issue, so that dlls are not being created on startup anymore.
