This is a false positive for the program CheVolume. I have used this program on Windows 8.1 professional and Windows 10. I have been using this program for about 6 months however today I noticed it was not loading. I checked my McAfee Total Protection, I opened Navigation > Quarantined And Trusted Items > Quarantined Items and I noticed McAfee kept putting chevolume.exe in a quarantined environment. I have not noticed any poor performance because of this program and believe this is a false positive.
Information regarding the program CheVolume and what it does can be found here: http://www.chevolume.com/
Information on pre-existing scans regarding CheVolume can also be found here: http://www.herdprotect.com/chevolume.exe-8dfa7c294372979c6b8920c7f1f2273171567b49.aspx
If there is any additional information required please let me know and I will provide any additional required pieces of information.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have sent an email however I have a GMail address and it will not let me send zip files as attachments.
Proof to show I am not making this up: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6590?hl=en
What I have done is sent an email to that address with a link to where I uploaded my files to a hosting website. The website that I have chosen is located here: http://www.filehosting.org/
I hope this is acceptable if not is there anything short of making a new email address somewhere else that I can do to submit these files?
Post the download link and I will sent it on your behalf. I am unsure if your way will work. I will remove the link immediately I have the zipped file
Offline for next 10 hrs so post then please
This is the email word for word that I sent to the address within the link you sent me earlier:
To Whom It May Concern,
In this email you will find links to 2 .zip files. The "CheVolume Executable" zip file contains only CheVolume.exe. The "CheVolume All Files" zip file contains all the files to make CheVolume run. I wasn't sure if I should just give you the single executable file so I have made two separate zip files containing additional files if necessary.
GMail will not let me attach .zip files as detailed here: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6590?hl=en
Links removed as stated above

current detection [chevolume.exe]
They seem to determine it is malware and not Artemis ie Artemis is used to describe new detections. I will escalate this
Thank you very much.
When can I expect a fix to be implemented and where will I be notified of a fix? Will everything be updated via this discussion?
Once again, thank you very much for your speedy help!
Well I emailed them but usually the message says inconclusive and sending for a manual check. This message I got does not and was clear they feel it was a malware so I escalated the issue to the mid level support in the virus labs. If I have not posted back in 3 days post back and I will chase things up further. Remember it is the weekend so they may not be working.
I will keep checking back here for a response.
Thank you very much for emailing it on my behalf and thank you once again for all your help!
