Reviewing 1.3.13 Beta 1 (Sep 20, 2016)
I get the same notification from AVG...I am not going to download any more versions until it can be determined that it is free of malware/viruses/trojans etc.
Reviewing 1.3.12 (Sep 17, 2016)
This file seems to have been infected with a trojan: version "foobar2000 1.3.12".
Both the file from BN and also directly from the author's download page give the same results from Avira AV when running the installer .exe file: Detection: TR/AD.NsisInject.8f0f0c (Cloud). Does NOT seem to be a "false positive" detection. This occurs immediately after double-clicking the .exe installer, before any further option choices would appear, such as allowing installation of Google Chrome, or other 3rd-party money generating add-on software. The software is very useful, except for the above noted problem.

Beta 2 is out.
Reviewing 1.3.8 (Mar 26, 2015)
Superb player - Personally I prefer AIMP mainly for the skins but foobar is one of the best.
Reviewing 1.3.7 Beta 1 (Dec 23, 2014)
I love foobar2000 but it really needs to come with at least an option of skins upon install like WinAmp does. If you have been driven away by its sparse look and gave up on it here's a skin I'd recommend which will most likely make you appreciate the player:
I also dig this for addon for adding lyrics to files:
Sooo, that components is PP blocking exactly? This ain't the Foobar forums, because of that fact I don't have to care which foobar denizens get their panties in a bunch (not that I would anyway) and inquiring minds want to know. :) :) ;)
