Mr Agent, if you are a HP owner like me you have to be extra careful when your
AV detects something on that folders or on HP updates folder.

Sincerly i never had a detection of avast! in my hp folders. Otherwise my action is set to move to chest first and if its a false positive i could restore it by doing no damage.

And of course dont worry for me. But thx for warn me its alway good too ;)

avast! has no alot false positive. But we dont know its alway nice to verify throught some virus scan. ;D

Mr. Agent I always verify with Jotti/Virus total but if I was you and a HP
file is detected I would not even move it from its original location, unless
the file its a real virus. When HP files on my computer have been detected
I always go to the file to see the dates so in less than 5 minutes I know its
a FP.
I am going to tell you a little story. Three months ago some AV like Kaspersky
and Avira detected a bunch of files in the HP recovery folder. Anybody that
deleted those files without realizing that they are FP ended up with a useless
recovery function. I am not one of them and hopefully neither you.

Well that why avast! has for first action "Move to chest" so if a fps is occured then the user can restore it by go in the chest and click restore.

Otherwise i never had problem with HP or avast! or any of my products that i use now. If its happen i will try to know how to resolve it dont worry. ;)

There just a file that have been detected by Malwarebytes for me that im really wondering and dont got respond so i said i dont take chance and i did ignore it.

But avast! dont detect it or Windows Defender so i dont have to worry. ;D

Malwarebytes has some false positive so that why i shouldnt recommand it to the users that dont know so much in computer. ;)

Also the file has no been used for like 4 years so yeah i never take a chance for if im never sure. Otherwise i could destroy my pc. Also we need to understand that if its wanted to destroy my pc that file then its would already do it long time ago lol.

Its not important and you wont find it about it in internet and i checked it with virustotal and all came up clean so its indeed a false positive but mbam said something to me for why they dont corrected the fps. So i dont care i did put it on ignore so dont worry too much for me mate. I know what im doing. ;)

Edit : I did find KillIt.exe and indeed avast! flagged it as PUP i hope they correct it soon otherwise i do ignore it now.
