Win32:Trojan-gen. {VC}
« on: May 23, 2005, 04:37:17 PM »
I downloaded a couple of Demos from
PhotoKit & PhotoKit Sharpener

avast! claims to have found a virus - Win32:Trojan-gen. {VC} in both.
Assuming this is a false positive, how do I allow avast! to run these files without disabling my protection?
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600 OS: W7 x64 sp1(updated) MEMORY:16gb RAM SYSTEM DISK: 128gb GRAPHICS: AMD Radeon HD 6900 2gb SECURITY SOFTWARE: avast! free (7.0.1426) - comodo firewall 5.10

If you are getting a virus warning that you believe is a false positive, then if you can zip and password protect ('virus', will do) the suspect file and send it to virus @ (no spaces).

Give a brief outline of the problem, the fact that you believe it to be a false positive and include the password in the body of the email. Some info on the avast version and VPS number (see about avast {right click avast icon}) will also help.

You could also check the offending/suspect file at: Jotti - Multi engine on-line virus scanner if any other scanners here detect them it is less likely to be a false positive.

It certainly seems like a false positive. No need to submit, I have download the package.
