Threaded View
Hi All
I am using a VB6Program.exe program which is run by a windows service
twice a day in the hidden mode.
For some reason, McAfee antivirus software has become more aggressive
and is now seeing a harmeless VB6Program.exe as a virus and moving it
to the C:\QUARANTINE folder (and adding the extension .vir). I am
using the Windows XP Service Pack 2 and McAfee antivirus version 8.0

I am using it from 3 to 4 years but this problem has never occured
before this. Other people are also using the same program with same
environment but only two or three persons have this problem, all other
have no such problem.

Do any one has any idea why McAfee antivirus software is doing so?

Thanks & Regards
Basharat

Submit the files being falsely detected to McAfee via the email addtress
virus_research@avertlabs.com  and in the subject of the email use "False
Positive on VB6
software" and in the body of the email state your case why you believe the
attached files
are not malware.

Attach all the files deemed malware (and you haven't posted what they were
declared as) in
a password protected ZIP file with the password being;  infected  { password =
infected }
