A Squared - False Positives?

Just done an update and scan and found lots of high risk issues that nothing else seems to be picking up.

I quarantined these and it crashed my XP PC.

Wondered if anyone else had similar issues please?

You will need to post afew of the entries found Halmer and we can check them out.

What happens if you scan again...are the same entries found ?

I quarantined them.

It informed me that it couldn't deal with one of them and would need to consult the A2 forum. I quarantined the rest and the PC crashed.

Switched the PC back on and it booted up OK. ran the A2 scan again and they seemed to be there again

I have restored them all and am running others eg Malwarebytes, Superantispyware etc. They don't seem to find anything amiss.

I've just downloaded the new IE 8 and wonder if it's something to do with that.

Will post back with some examples.

Try running Malwarebytes click here and see what it picks up. It could be a false positive.
