    PowerDVD file identified as trojan

      ran a scan today and CLHBMIXER_HBD.AX was detected as a trojan



      Detection Type: Trojan


      Detection Names:Artemis!32EF119D1FFB, Artemis!32EF119D1FFB


      Status: Quarantined


      File Name:

      ...... CLHBMIXER_HBD.AX



      I'm 100% sure this isn't a trojan, my system is always up-to-date (W7 pro 64), firewalled, behind a router, I haven't (and don't) downloaded anything potentially nasty, and my browsing habits are very safe. It's strange as the only other time I have had to request help with a file being detected as a trojan was powerdvd.exe some time ago! Didn't really know where to post this and request help from McAfee, so i've posted it here as I got excellent support the last time this happened.


      best wishes

            Hi Pabs


            I have checked the file and suppressed further with McAfee(R) Artemis technology (provides real-time protection that secures enterprises and consumers from threats as they strike and much quicker than traditional signatures can be deployed. As Artemis is updated in real-time there is no requirement to wait for a full DAT update nor to use an EXTRA.DAT intermediate solution.)


            filename: clhbmixer_hbd.ax (Power DVD)


            Simply wait approximately 30 minutes and this false will no longer exist or trigger on your system. Depending on the network settings you have or the caching involved between your system and ours it may take slightly longer for this false alarm to be resolved.


            Let me know if you need any assistance further

              thanks Sam and Neha, didn't expect a response so fast, thank you for your help and attention. I will not have access to my PC until tomorrow now to confirm the powerdvd file is accepted, but I'm sure all is now well. I will post again tomorrow just to confirm it is ok, thanks again for your fast replies and help.
