    False Positives

    Periodically software created with Multimedia Fusion (MMF) will cause a virus protection "false positive". A false positive error, or in short false positive, commonly called a "false alarm", is a result that indicates a given condition has been fulfilled, when it actually has not been fulfilled.

    Each virus protection software provider is constantly updating their libraries and as new capabilities (objects/extentions/runtimes) are introduced into MMF these files typicaly fall behind. When MMF creations do create a false positive the author should contact the antivirus provider so that these libraries can be updated.

    This page provides a list of all of the most common providers:

    Attached are examples of typical alerts from common antivirus providers.
