    I started receiving this on Sunday May 31 for all our computers after database 5160 update. I submitted the file as a false positive. We are now on database 5163 and I have restored the file from quarantine and it is not longer being detected.

    Was the file or file(s) being flagged during a scan or during normal operation? Under what O/S - please.

    Nowadays many threats are compromising user's security by masking themselves as system OS processes or as a legitimate software from any of legal vendors. To check that this is a false-positive only from ESET Threat Sense Engine you could upload suspected file to, for example, virustotal.com and check the scanning result.

    It is against Wilders TOS to post virus total links back here Nerimash

    It is true that new methods are being used every day to mask malware as
    legitimate system files and other. :ouch:

    Yep, I know Wilders ToS that's why I didn't ask him to post scanning result here. Anyhow he could check it only for himself.

    PS Excuse me for my English writing skills. It's a bit hard to write in language which is not your native language. But I always tries to be clear.
