    Default McAfee Continues to Harm WinPatrol Users

    Two weeks ago McAfee changed one of their signature files and it started to tell all their customers our WinPatrol setup programs was a dangerous Trojan named Artemis!4FAE1D776481. A week ago I finally found the correct procedure to submit my file and report their “false-positive” error. I was told by an automated Email that their test was inconclusive and the file was being sent to Bangalore India for more research.
    Bill re-created the WinPatrol setup program by purchasing a new install package called Tarma InstallMate 7. McAfee not does report a false problem with this new setup. If you are still a McAfee user, you can download the new installation file from BillP Studios Download Page.

    Looks like McAfee prefers to err on the side of caution; even to the extent of going ahead and labeling a trusted program like WinPatrol as a Trojan!

    This is why it is always important to make sure community members are part of a company's research team. McAfee have slipped up, but it's they way they have slipped up which is the key here.

    Update: Bill Pytlovany posted elsewhere that Steven Burn, who manages the website Ur I.T. Mate Group - Keeping it FREE! - Software, hosting, icons, guestbooks, forums, website submission + lots more... all FREE! and hpHosts, was helpful in getting a response from McAfee. After over two weeks, this has finally been resolved.
