    VirusScan 8.5.0i does not detect PUPs

      I have latest DAT 5693 and latest engine 5301.4018.

      I have a PUP that is detected by webimmune indicating that the 5692 is identifying the program as generic.pup.x, however whenever I do a 'Scan for threats', on the PC where I store viruses, it indicates that no threats found. All unwanted program categories are ticked in virusscan console, but no luck. :(

      I have seen on multiple installations and multiple sites. Is this normal? Has anybody else noticed the same.

      I thought that the PUPs were successfully detected by McAfee successfully eventhough they were not viruses, but I don't see it working.

      Any help will be useful, documents, pointers, tips, anything.

      Regards,

      Mitesh
