Reported. It's detecting the following File Path: C:/Users\Michael\Appdata\LocalLow\COMODO\CertSentry.

File Name: Subjects.sst
Virus: Win32:Adware-AZL

I'll admit to having this type of adware. it was throughly checked by Argus I believe. There has been no pop-ups or anything. I'll run it through VT

VT: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/9d544b1d168fda74e550a92b8eb55c6ae0e317f2e344fec7efb0f126701a9d3b/analysis/1381880215/

Note: It also found the same variant in my downloads folder. File name woould sound like a pop-up ad or something and executed itself. Or I clicked it by accident. I'll post a ScreenShot of the detection of Comodo files being in my Chest

Milos,

I sent the file through the Virus Chest with a label of FP. Should I send it through email as well?

If so I will when I get home. gmail is blocked here, and I don't have the file.
