the below document would help you to submit he file to mcafee labs so that they send you an extra dat file , by which if your software is non malicious it wont be quarantined by mcafee.

already did that when it first happened but wasnt sure of the procedure after its sent and wasnt sure if there was anythng i could do in meantime to allow real time protection to be turned back on as mirc is running all the time my pc is on but thank you for the reply
I spent an hour yesterday in IM chat with McAffee Support with the exact same issue, it was an extremely frustrating experience as I found the same problem that I could not add Mirc to my 'trusted applications'.
I have sent the file to McAfee so hopefully more ppl will complain and McAfee will update their signatures and not identify Mirc as a virus.
I've had issues with CA doing this kind of thing, wrongly identifying apps or dll's as suspect, but haven't had a problem with McAfee before.
Does anyone know when this will be resolved as I either disable MSC or not have mirc running.
Looking forward to this being resolved promptly.
