    Hello, My PCDoorGuard has found dk2.2setup.exe in your free app. MIRclean.exe, Is this supposed to be there? As this was identfied as a security risk.

    Hi Eric,
    We've never had any similar reports regarding mIRClean so it is almost certainly a false alarm. mIRClean hasn't been modified in over a year either, so it's very strange that only now you're detecting it -- perhaps there's a problem with the latest database update of PCDoorGuard, or perhaps it is just finding some of the strings that mIRClean searches for. I'm not sure what "dk2.2setup.exe" is, but I can assure you it has nothing to do with mIRClean. Please feel free to download other anti-virus scanners and you'll see that PCDoorGuard is probably the only thing that detects anything in mIRClean.

    Best regards,
    Wayne

    Ok, Thankyou for your response, PCdoorguard is very sensitive & more than likely did pick up on a string that MIRclean looks for.

    Thank you
    Eric

    Hi Eric,

    I've seen a few bad false alarms before on install/uninstall stubs, which are part of the installer program which puts a program on your PC. mIRClean uses the same installer as DiabloKeys (DK) so I would say their signature is taken from a bad location - you would want to let them know of your false positive detection so they can fix it and avoid this in the future, its not uncommon it seems :)
