Well, this is the exactly behavior of a false positive: a clean object that the antivirus thinks it is infected  :)

Do you think the tech team will send a patch for this?  It's a bit annoying seeing the scrolling windows of the on access scanners go from time to time because I have selected Customize for one of them...  No biggie but just wondering. :)

Does the last virus database correct your problem? 0603-0
The team always correct these problems  ;D
I mean, trojan gen signatures are very easy to generate false positives. So, there is a cautions realease, mostly in weekends and the problems are corrected asap.

They don't send individual patches, the VPS signatures get modified to ensure this isn't detected in future. It would then be included in a normal VPS update.

Sorry I don't understand, what is scrolling, how have you customized one of them (what did you do)?

Oh, I just did this to fix the problem:

Left Click Standard Shield- Customize- Advanced- ADD : C:\Program
Files\PlaidBanana\OlloFair\OlloFair.exe

I'll wait for the next update and see if this gets rid of my needing to Customize the setting....
