This is not a virus, even the name says "trojan" not "virus", they are two different things, but in this case it's not a trojan either, it's simply Installcore, a tool that allows bitcomet to offer you optional software that you can select or decline. As long as it's not abused installcore is a legitimate tool and won't install any malware on your system, but if you want bitcomet without installcore try the link in my signature.

There is no 'trojan'. What is happening is that some anti-virus apps think that installcore is one (it isn't)

There is a big difference between a trojan (something that installs an unwanted app on the computer) and a virus (which attacks files already there). In the case of installcore, you do get an option whether or not to install the bundled software (which coincidentally, this time round, is a trial version of Symantec/Norton).

It's the bundled commercial software that pays for the servers.
