There appears to be a virus attached somehow to the studio One 3 64 bit installer and it wont let me download it. The virus is a  ObfusRansom.F_78 trojan and when I click the download button it redirects me to a site with the header "SonicWall" next to the PreSonus logo, and then informs me that the download is blocked due to the virus. Please Help!! Has anyone had the same experience? Any suggestions?

Our software does not include what you are stating.

These types of nasty files appear when your system has already been compromised by something else from the interwebs. We see these types of barnacle files when a computers internet traffic is re-routed through other systems.

Contact your local computer repair shop for help. They will be experienced in sorting out issues like this.

False positive results have been reported by users of Sonic Wall previously. Try disabling Sonic Wall temporarily and the download should go fine, then re-enable Sonic Wall.
