Click Active Protection (left)
Turn it off at right.
Thanks for your reply Peter. I've already read the sticky note and know how to turn off the active protection but I'd rather not do that if I can avoid it. I guess the only thing for me to do is either wait until the database is updated and the game excluded from it or uninstall McAfee entirely and use another anti-virus...
Right, I understand. You can always do what I suggest in that sticky - temporarily disable VirusScan long enough to report the item.
Dear McAfe team,
This is the second time in a forthnight that McAffe removes an FS9 dll so-called "infected" by Artemis 7BCE27C37459 - Location is FS9/Modules. This dll is absolutely necessary to run an add-on B767 plane in Microsoft FS9. Is there a fix foreseen and when ? - Last time the file infected was flt1chk4.dll and issue was fixed in 1 day
I already did that so I guess I just have to wait for the file to be excluded from the database. Thanks Peter!
You're welcome. Hopefully it will be soon.
I was finally able to solve the problem by directly contacting customer support at Playrix Entertainment (the company that developed the game). They were very efficient and had me download a slightly different version of the game (only the files are somewhat different, the game in itself is exactly the same). I was able to install it and McAfee no longer detects a trojan, problem fixed!
I was lucky the people at Playrix were so helpful, it's been a week since I mentioned the problem to McAfee customer support but I have yet to hear from them...
Thank goodness for that as we've had a rash of games being detected lately and the process of fixing it takes so long.
Anyway, good luck.
