A2 False Positives

  Input Overload 09:49 12 Feb 2010

A2 seems to have a shed load of false positives in the latest update, to the degree I've taken it off background guard.

Next update should reinstall them again.
You have not updated to Beta 5 version have you.If you have update beta ticked they would automatically install it.

Just ran the quick scan it came up with Trojan in Winpatrol and ladbrokes.They uploaded the files so that they could check them but I have left them on the computer in case they are false positives.
Thanks for the warning.

I do Beta testing but never on security software, I leave that to the brave. Yes I got a Trojan in Win Patrol & MS Office, Eset, Acronis True Image etc.

Yes, I get Trojans in Acronis, WinPatrol,and Kaspersky

Decided to do a full scan and 49 objects found mostly trojans.So they have uploaded them again to check them out.bet it is something to do with that Beta 5 version that they now have.
Anyhow thanks for the warning I would probably be panicking now and deleting them all but will leave them to see what happens.

As much as I like A2 gave it up as it just cried wolf with false positives all the time, leaving a dilemma of waiting till someone else confirms the FP or is it a nasty.

Seems like the latest update has sorted the issues. I agree sunnystaines A2 does appear to have more FP's than other Anti-Mal-Ware programs.

it usually rectifies the problems with its next update and will restore anything left in the quarantine box.
