my U3 lauchpad downloads comes from s3.amazonaws.com

Hi staff/forumers,

 

I was trying to download firefox from my U3 launchpad browser (downloads link on the lauchpad u3 menu). Well, it is openning the u3 browser but when I click to download firefox it opens the windows download dialog wich points to:

Name: firefoxu3.exe

Type: Application, 8.23 mb

From: freeapps.s3.amazonaws.com

 

After download completed and I click to run install, the install AVG antivirus says me it is infected.

 

Please help me as now I see everything I'm downloading from the lauchpad browser on my U3 is pointing to the amazonws.com site and I cant download anything more.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Uninstall - reinstall launchpad then download firefox from www.u3.com.

The site amazonaws.com is just the Amazon.com datacenter.  No worries there, as it is a secure, legitimate business datacenter.

 

As for AVG saying there is a trojan, you are running an old version of AVG.  This is a known issue with older versions, and AVG has released an update.  I would suggest getting the updated version and you will not see the alert about trojans with U3 apps any more.
