    I was trying dr web 4.33 and installed coreforce firewall, Dr web displayed this warning

    heuristics have picked that up .......

    if you think its an FP, rar it up with the password 'virus' and go to http://support.drweb.com/sendnew/ and send it through there, they should tell you if it is one.

    it is not many, and they are quickly resolved.

    look at dr.webs record with VB 100%, its sooooo amazing.#

    and also look at the ICAS awards, they couldnt get them with FP's.

    sure some products get more FP's in real life than others, but i dont know any company who resolves them faster than dr.web, only av-comp are giving dr.web a bad name for FP's and it wasnt even the worst for it in those tests.

    The somewhat off-topic discussion has been split out of this thread and placed in a thread of it's for further discussion....lack of a better word :rolleyes:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=162124

    This present thread remains a support thread for the possible FP presented by ashishtx. Any other side discussion like the one removed....Please take to another thread.

    Thanks,
    Bubba
