Just few days ago I downloaded Audacity from http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
in order to install into friend's PC ... and of course mp3 lame codec from the link http://lame.buanzo.com.ar/
as suggested from initial Audacity page. Unfortunately the lame wouldn't install due to a embedded trojan as I read in another forum.
THERE ARE NO VIRUSES IN THE OFFICIAL AUDACITY RELEASE OF THE LAME ENCODER
Audacity and Lame should be downloaded from the official sources.

"rollerpoint" - I suggest that you do a full virus scan of the computer that you used - if this file was infected, it became infected on one of the machines that you were using. Be sure to use a reputable virus scanner - some so called anti-virus programs make up problems that do not exist in an attempt to coerce you into buying their product. Even reputable anti-virus programs can give false positives, usually if they are set up to use aggressive heuristic analysis If in doubt, files can be tested by multiple scan engines by using on-line services such as the one mentioned above.
Please do not spread unfounded and unsubstantiated rumours.
You should use the correct version of Lame with Audacity - this is especially true with Audacity 1.3.7 as Audacity 1.3.7 requires that Lame has been built against specific (up to date) libraries which is not generally the case with other versions.
