    It was created while I was uninstalling my Star Wars: Republic Commandos. IMON said it was Adware/Apropos but it couldn't be. Scaned with jotti and only Fortinet found it. Seems the beta is working but it's too sensitive? So how can I send it to eset for further analysis on this file? I am using the beta.

    Edit: scanned it with virustotal and here is the result.
    This is a report processed by VirusTotal on 05/02/2005 at 18:46:02 (CET) after scanning the file "libexpat_01C54F7787E4010F_.dll" file.

    Have a look here

    By the way, how can you know that it's a false positive? Especially since 3 different AVs found it to be (the same piece of) ad-ware?

    EDIT: Usually, for false positives, I think you are supposed to submit them at support at
