    How to solve a sfc.dll detected as PUP?

      I am running Windows XP Professional on my work laptop and McAfee.

       

      When I run McAfee I get a 'Potentially Unwanted Program.':
      PatchedSFC
      C:\WINDOWS\system32\sfc.dll
      Delete failed (Clean failed)

       

      I have been reading a lot of different help sites with this topic but I can not really find a solution to the problem. I understand that the file sfc.dll is a critical part of the windows system and that this problem is probably a "false positive" outcome. But I need a completely clean computer for my work.

       

      The first time I got this outcome (few weeks ago) was after a windows automatic software update.

       

      I hope anybody can help me.
