Prevx reports AhAscr.dll as high risk cloaked malware
« on: January 05, 2011, 04:46:53 PM »
In Avast5 folder for .864.  I reported it to Prevx as an FP, but don't know which of their heuristic factors called it out.
Windows 7 x64HP-SP1-No UAC, Opera 11.51, Avast! Internet Security 6.0.128, Webroot SecureAnywhere latest beta, Windows FW off, MVPS HOSTS, SAS/MBAM offline, Macrium Reflect just in case ;)

I had a lot of FP's using PrevX, I liked PrevX but got fed up after a while and switched to Avast after the years license ran out
Every time Perfect Disk issued an update PrevX would flag it.
I would report it as an FP and 1/2 days later all would be well, until next time
It was just the locally generated code (new) compared with what was held on the PrevX server (old)

Ho-hum
