    Am I Submitting this False Positive Report Correctly?

      I am new here to the forum but not to McAfee. I have used McAfee as far back as I can remember and I have been very happy with the program up until the last year. Since some dat update in January, it's been detecting my critically important Chaos Manager program as a False Positive, one named Generic.dx!kfx, which, to me, seems to be one of these Artimis readings. It has been so disruptive I have had to choose between full virus protection and Chaos Manager, and sadly, I had to sacrifice my computer protection. I have been to tech support, sent the samples through both the Avert Web Site and the McAfee program itself to no avail. I even submitted a sample through email, but... I realize now I forgot to zip the infected file and password it.


      Long story short, before I submit yet another sample through email, I'd like to make sure I have all my email information correct. That said, this is a copy of my submission email, minus the correctly done zip file. Am I missing anything?
