Sorry for this dumb question
« on: October 07, 2011, 05:12:14 AM »
I picked up a couple of warnings when I went to a couple of websites, I figure they're false positives and sent in the report. I decided to scan them after submitting the reports and they both came back with a blue circle with a lower case letter i in the center. I right and left clicked on it but nothing happened. I've never seen that before with a scan on something in the vault, could someone please tell me what that symbol means?

It's really embarrassing to have to ask   ::)

I sent it in to the virus lab.

Here's screen shot, sorry it's a little off center.



I'm wondering if that means it's okay and only a false positive or if it means something else.  ???

This is the result of scanning an item in the chest.

Normally there is content next to the X

It should look like the image. What is the file that you are scanning from the chest?


Also, this is not a dumb question, no such thing here ;)

Here's a screen shot of the Virus chest. These popped up when I went to a couple of sites that I go to on a regular basis. It was the first time for both.



I'm not even sure if they're anything to worry about. I did a Malwarebytes scan and nothing showed up.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if this was something anyone else had ever had a problem with (or  if it is even a problem-lol)

I just rescanned and go the same message  ???
