    Guys,

    WinXP SP2, NOD32 4.2.67.10 w/ database 6062

    It is randomly detecting MY programs which I am compiling as..

    "a variant of Win32/TrojanDropper.Agent.OCN trojan"

    Not all of them.. just some - and randomly.

    I can privately supply the actual executables that are being "misdetected" if you want.

    I can ASSURE you they are NOT "trojans"

    Most of them are stupid little "function test" programs to test core routines before I say "it's good" and place them in my archive of core routines.

    They have been compiled at all different times.. just happened that I was compiling a new test program tonite, and the real-time virus protection kept deleting my routine as it was compiled - rather frustrating.

    Thanks in advance, I sort of need to get this solved, and something tells me a recent database change caused this.

    Or you could just exclude the files from being scanned if you know that they are clean. This seems to be an Heuristic detection.

    Well, I'd hope if that's the case, they'll FIX their "Heuristic detection" since one of the programs (of the 4) sole purpose was to test a "FileExists" routine.
