From the Help section in Security Center:
Work with potentially unwanted programs
If VirusScan detects a potentially unwanted program on your computer, you can either remove or trust the program. If you are unfamiliar with the program, we recommend that you consider removing it. Removing the potentially unwanted program does not actually delete it from your system. Instead, removing quarantines the program to prevent it from causing damage to your computer or files.
Open the Scan Results pane.
Double-click the Scan completed icon in the notification area at the far right of your taskbar.
On the Scan pane, click Details.
In the scan results list, click Potentially Unwanted Programs.
Select a potentially unwanted program.
Under I want to, click either Remove or Trust.
Confirm your selected option
I did trust it, but I'm wondering why McAfee finds a well-known safe product like GoToMyPC a Potentially Unwanted Program? And might people who don't know exactly why it's being detected select "Remove" simply because they figure McAfee knows best? Quarantining that file makes the progam unusable, right?
Maybe something in GoToMyPC changed and the heuristic scanner wasn't sure. It usually sorts itself out eventually and it happens with all A/V applications that have heuristic scanning.
The idea is that it's better to be safe than sorry.
It might prove a problem for some people, but then just about anything can do that.
If one wants a quicker solution one can always forward it to the threat center for review, after disabling VirusScan temporarily. There's a sticky about that here:
I'll move this to the VirusScan forum as it applies to that rather than the Firewall.
