no , no one install Radmin on my computer, it's a new clean box.the
radmin.exe is the client of the Radmin.

in my memory , Norton AntiVirus 2004 has mark the Radmin as potential malware
and in 2005, it was marked as Hacktool

i have googled for it ,Trend Micro also marks it a hacktool,HKTL_RADMIN.A
http://www.trendmicro.com/vinfo/virusencyclo/default5.asp?VName=HKTL_RADMIN.A

"This hacking tool is actually a commercial software used for network
administration.

Is RemoteAdministrator a commercial remote control software or a Hacktool ?

Hi,

Imagine that someone has installed Remote Administrator (or,
PCAnyWhere, VNC, DMWare, etc...) on your computer, without your
permission (it can be do now with some GDI+ faked jpeg for example).
What should your antivirus software do?

For many years, antivirus softwares had never alert users about such
tools, so I think it's a good news!

See you,
