NOT NOT NOT a computer expert, so you should probably wait for the "pros" to weigh in... (so feel free to disregard this)
And I am not at all familiar with rockxp.exe.
And I've only had 1 major false positive in > 1 year with McAfee, so I'm hardly the best person to ask.
And you might want to subtitle your post as "false positive - rockxp.exe" -- just a thought?
That said, you *might* wish to try the following:
1) uninstall rockxp.exe completely (using a standalone uninstaller, such as Revo, if need be, to be sure all traces are removed)
3) download rockxp.exe and save (don't run the file yet)
4) TEMPORARILY disable the FW and AV in McAfee
5) install rockxp.exe
6) open the McAfee firewall & AV configuration panels and, if you don't see rockxp.exe as "allowed" or "trusted", manually add the main EXE files for the application (e.g. C:\Program Files\ROCKXP\rockxp.exe (that's just an example -- I don't know what the actual file paths will be)).
7) Re-enable the McAfee FW and AV.
8) Cross your fingers/toes and roll your eyes.
I recently followed this rather cumbersome procedure to install a standalone AV app on my PC, and I *did* have to do step #6.
OR You may be able to just go into the quarantine and select rockxp.exe and set it to "ignore"?
If you're not comfortable with any of this, then just wait for the gurus to weigh in.
(Have you searched the forums and FAQs for "false positives" or "adding programs to trusted list"?)
Hope this helps more than confuses,
Thanks for the reply.
I do not use McAfee firewall, so that is always off.
rockxp.exe is a stand alone exe, so no installation is needed.
I have definitely been rolling my eyes.
