    Does CounterSpy have a mechanism for reporting false positives?

    Yes...here.

    I have already reported this FP.
    EDIT: the site from VaMPiRiC_CRoW in #4 is much better for reporting FP's to CS.

    Hi Stephanos G
    You are correct, it happened to me also, had to put it back(UNquarrantine).
    They also have a page that lists the FP's that have been fixed in the latest definitions. I will find it and post later.
    EDIT: Here is the area to see what was fixed

    Edit: There is more information on this "new.net" here

    Cheers :)

    Hi VaMPiRiC_CRoW
    That is a much better site for submitting FP's than the one I had before.
    Thanks for the correction.
    Cheers :)

    Now, that is strange.
    Thanks for your feedback VaMPiRiC_CRoW. I will have to keep an eye on this one, to see if any others except Stephanos G.and myself are getting this notification.
    Cheers :)
