    This is false positive and will be fixed with the next signature Update.
    Please use the quarantine module to restore this VchReg.dll file.

    Hello Group,
    I did an Ewido scan this morning and the RogueSuspect was found. Not being aware of the background on this, I went ahead and applied a Delete action.
    Is this another false positive, and did I lose anything important be deleting it? The response below from karl.ewido says that the VchReg.dll file should be restored after a quarantine action.
    What is this .dll, and what is the impact on my XP PC from my having apparently lost it by applying a delete, instead of quaranteen action? Recoverable?
    Thanks for looking in.
    Chuck
