OH MY GOODNESS! I was freaking out because I thought I did something stupidand got a trojan. I got home to play Final Fantasy XI and suddenly something pops up saying Playonline viewer file is missing and I must reinstall. Since I am running Windows 7 I had to use the file I downloaded from Playonline 6 months ago. I logged into POL viewer fine. I had to shut down for basic computer updates, when everythgn came back up.. I got the same error!
if you are sure it is false positive.
go into mcafee
view recent events.
find that file. restore it.
turn off mcaffee real time for 5 mins. start POL
mcaffee only checks the .dll on file access so you can start up pol and then anti virus will be back up.
and when they white list the dll, mcafee will ignore that dll
