Program will be falsely detected as virus

Hallo Folks,

McAfee will detected a programm as a virus, but that is wrong.

Now, what can I do, to say McAfee, don't check this programm or this directory?

Every time, when I take a scan, McAfee delete this programm into the Quarantine.

Please, I need your help.

Thanks for all.

Thanks for your information.

I have asked McAfee, there is no way to scan whitout a directory. In my opinion, that is a great bug.

All other programs have a option, to say, what files will be scan (Ignoreliste) and on which directory will be scan.

I hope, this feature will add in the future.

You and we mods both. We have asked for this for ages 6 years actually and will hope that it will move into the GUI soon.

Still a good idea to submit as it is/could be  a false positive.

Re: Program will be falsely detected as virus

Hello Peacekeepers,

Now, in my company we have now decided no longer to use McAfee. And at home, I would also say goodbye to McAfee after my license is going out. That McAfee have not a ignore list is a big problem for our company.

It is a pity, because otherwise I have been very satisfied with McAfee. But that's not all about.

Thanks for your help.
