False positive on virus MO97:Dropper-AJ
« on: November 27, 2014, 09:09:07 PM »
Yesterday I received a false positive on a VB basic library (an .Xlam file) from the Avast on Windows for the virus MO97:Dropper-AJ. My Avast program is up to date and so are the data bases of viruses.

After much searching I was able to find the cause of the false positive.
I replaced the following line
PathTemp = ENVIRON("USERPROFILE") by
PathTemp = ENVIRON("LOCALAPPDATA")
and the Avast warning of the virus disappeared.

Maybe someone at Avast could correct the problem.

Thanks  :)
