Yeah, me too. Someone just emailed me (we use DameWare for our helpdesk as well). I'm setting up exclusions as we speak; will kinda suck reinstalling it on the affected machines though.
Below is the response from McAfee regarding the Dameware issue.

VirusScan Enterprise and Total Protection Service detect Dameware file as a Generic-DX (Trojan) after DAT update 5390:
DWRCS.exe Generic-DX (Trojan)
Change or Cause
This is an issue with the DAT release 5390.
Virus Research has identified some files as being categorized as Generic-DX (Trojan) detections in the DAT 5390 release.
The Dameware detection naming issue is being reviewed by McAfee Avert Lab and will be fixed in DAT release 5391 of 24 Sept 08 to re-classify the DWRCS.exe as RemAdm-DWRC.
Mcafee are being equal opportunities, they have already scragged everyones VNC remote control now they are going after dameware.
