NSIS and Mcafee false possible

November 7, 2014 at 09:00:15
Specs: Windows 7
I have been unable to work with Mcafee GW edition since it detects each and every program that use NSIS as threats. Anyone else faced the same problem ?

I don't use McAfee but it is usually possible to "allow" anything that virus checkers find, or to add an exclusion.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yes It does but the detection makes no sense

Hmm. I wonder if an infection has come through. Try these two free programs on it:

MalwareBytes (green download icon top right):
http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...
When you run the program go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a check mark in "Scan for rootkits"

ADWcleaner (blue download icon at top):
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
You "Save" the file somewhere then double click it to run the program. Run the Scan and if it finds anything you get options. It's usually safe to then run the Clean but you can paste the log on here if you want us to look at it first.

Both of these programs look for different things and often find what an Anti-Virus can miss. If they find anything at all please paste the logs on here.

EDIT:
Just for correctness I think you might mean "False Positive".

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
