McAfee has removed PowerDVD.exe

this morning McAfee removed PowerDVD.exe, here are the details:



Detection name: W32/IRCbot.gen.z (Virus), W32/IRCbot.gen.z (Virus)

File: [path......] \PowerDVD.exe

Process: C:\Windows\Explorer.EXE

Process description: Windows Explorer



anyone else had this issue? My powerdvd installation is genuine (off of a disc I got when I purchased a blue ray optical drive for my pc), I would go through the process of reinstallating it but I get the feeling McAfee will just do it again, thought I would ask here for help first so any help would be much appreciated.

best regards

I have a similar problem with the same 'virus' and McAfee has killed Spotify!!

If you google this virus you will see that McAfee has dropped a big one!

False Positive - t2p_live_v12.exe

Hi,

We are a organization in the UK supporting aver 2000 schools, we have a couple of schools using McAfee as their anti virus software complaining of our file being recognised as a trojan horse. I have uploaded the file on webimmune and had no response also sent in an email about 3 days back no response and this is getting frustrating now as we have schools waiting.

the file t2p_v12_live.exe is being detected as trojan, this is a wrong detection.

Can someone please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Assuming you meant the PowerDVD.exe problem I'm afraid it hasn't been resolved, at least for me. After doing an update the virus reported changed from W32/IRCbot.gen.z to Artemis!324CEC27B448

Could you open the McAfee Security centre and click on about button and let me know the DAT number on the screen.
