    I continually get when A2 loads from Eset Security Suite: (Dang sorry A2 not A3 :)

    18/02/2010 07:51:18 Real-time file system protection file C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\mchInjDrv.sys Win32/MCH potentially unsafe application unable to clean NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM Event occurred on a new file created by the application: C:\Program Files\a-squared Anti-Malware\a2service.exe.

    I've uninstalled & reinstalled A2 to no avail. any ideas, I did read elsewhere on the forum Eset regards this as malware: Period. A2 have not responded, I've disabled A2 for the time being.

    Any ideas please?

    You can either disable detection of potentially unsafe applications or exclude the file from scanning.

    OK, Marcos, thank you. I think I would rather leave Eset as it is & use a different Anti-Malware program, I have a license for Super Anti-Spyware. The thing is these two programs have resided without issue together for many months/years. Was this file a recent addition by Eset?

    I'm getting a bit fed up anyway with the FP's that A2 seems to generate.

    You should ignore this file...mchInjDrv.sys is mad code hook injection driver...Its pretty much safe. Some anti-malware softwares like Threatfire and A-squared use this technique to detect malwares..They inject their process into already running processes or files to check the behavior of file...
