    The following DPFs have been identified on a PC using the malware scan of PES9:

    BrandX Messenger; PeopleOnPage.AproposMedia; and ShopAtHomeSelect.

    None of these entries actually exist in the Windows\DPF folder of the PC in question. Other examples could be cited of non-existent malware.
    Could Acronis Support please explain why the PES scanner is identifying this malware as being present on the PC?
    Many thanks,

    Gordon
