McAfee &

McAfee detects and deletes HJT as a virus (w32.generic Worm ) instantly. I knew McAfee was nothing but a joke but couldnt ever guessed it would do this. ( i am annoyed it keeps deleting it from my usb flash driver :deveous: :4-thatsba )

Yup. Merijn and McAfee fixed this before.....but it's back again. It's a false postive from the McAfee scanner...

McAfee is at is again, unfortunately. Yes, I am aware of the fact that McAfee detects HijackThis 1.99.1 as a generic worm. For the fourth time. Yes, I am aware of the fact that McAfee detects the StartupList standalone as an mhtml exploit webpage. This makes respectively the fifth and sixth time McAfee has mistakenly detected one of my programs as some brand of virus. And I'm getting pretty tired of this. Am I supposed to email each and every new version of a program I publish to McAfee so they can verify that UPX compression does not automatically equal a scary virus??
