I just ran into the avast! problem myself recently.

NOD32 doesn't catch it, but NOD just checks for viruses, not ad/spyware.

I think it's a false positive. But check this out:
I ran avast! and let it delete what it found inside RockXP... and RockXP still works!

Whether it's spyware or not, or just a false positive, I'm not sure. Either way, Korben should fix the issue, either by adjusting the files or by letting Alwil know about this.

Contains three hidden files, RAS.exe, keyms.exe, and xpkey.exe. NAV2004 Pro didn't find anything, automatically (on download and execution),or manually, using the latest definitions, and heuristics enabled. What scanner did you use?

It successfully retrieved my XP key when I ran xpkey.exe by itself. Keyms.exe errored out, and I didn't try RAS.exe. Resource hacker shows that the menus are in French. If I try it as it was meant to be run, I'll add to this review. I wonder if your virus scanner picked up on the script commands in the comment file for the self-extracting archive:

;The comment below contains SFX script commands

Setup=RockXP_.exe
TempMode
Silent=1
Overwrite=1

Ran a virus scanner over it (Avast!) after d/l and got a positive hit! Delete key pressed instantly. I'm sure there are other products out there that will accomplish the same functionality safely.
