    Issue 35264 with google chrome source

      Sorry, this is the answer from google chromium support, they say they won't fix this issue, but I should file a report to my Anti-virus vendor.

      Find attached the screenshot from mcafee enterprise 8.5.0i and the issue described below.

      Please let me know.

      Thank you in advance.

      I was downloading chrome browser source from the command windows:
      D:\chromiumtrunk>gclient sync
      This was the final error on the cmd windows:

        • 1. Re: Issue 35264 with google chrome source

          This is what is known as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) detection in VirusScan.


          The detection name is PRCViewer - see http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_137331.htm


          The reason it is a PUP is because:

          " PRCViewer is a small command line utility that can alter a processes  characteristics (Affinity and Priority) and also View, Close, Kill,  Suspend and Resume running processes, even when Task Manager access is  disabled.  "


          Some Administrators may not want that program running on machines they manage.


          Preventing McAfee from detecting Prcviewer is simple - you need to add it to the "Exclusions" of the "Unwanted Programs Policy". However, you will need access to change the configuration of VirusScan, which if your copy is managed by an Administrator may be difficult.

            In fact I can not change that configuration... I have installed sysinternals process explorer without any alert from mcafee av on the same machine... I posted your reply to the chromium support, but I think they would ignore this incompatibility between chrome and mcafee just like mcafee seems be doing...

            Sorry if my comment is not appropriate here, and thanks again for your clarification.
