    Updated Ewido this morning and ran a scan and it claims to have found Banload.apw, a high risk, on my system. The thing is, is says it is in dpt.exe, Deap Pixel Tester. This small program has been on my system since July 2004 and has been recommended by many sites. I scanned DPT with SpySweeper and NOD32, and they found nothing; also never any warnings from BoClean. False positive? o_O

    Thank you,
    Acadia

    sorry but we cannot reproduce this false-positive with the latest signatures and the latest version of this Dead Pixel Tester tool, please send us a copy of your dpt.exe file:

    Please update the ewido software. The False-Positive should be fixed.

    Wow!! I am impressed, thank you very much. That did indeed fix the problem. This was my first experience with Ewido tech support, and all I can say is :thumb: :thumb: .
