    Total Defense (CA Anti-Spyware) Internet Security False Positive

    I am fairly certain that my anti virus is now falsely declaring lnchrt.exe and MMF 2 applications as infected with a virus.

    The virus is listed as: win32/Tnega.ARWO

    I looked at their site, and saw that vendors can make a vendor's request to have them take your product off of their list.

    It could have gotten infected with a virus, instead of being a virus by itself. However, more likely than not, it's a false positive.

    I'm pretty sure it is a false positive. When I installed MMF 2 on a different machine with the same scanner, it found the same thing once MMF 2 installed the update.

    Do you have the URL handy for requesting they fix their faulty scanner?

    Here is the first URL about false positives:

    [url]http://totaldefense.iyogi.com/?p=961[/url

    It will refer you to here, which is not about reporting false positives, but reporting viruses:

    http://totaldefense.iyogi.com/?p=460

    It does have this email address: spyware@ca.com or virus@ca.com

    I am not pleased that they aren't very direct here.

    Thanks.
