    With the latest beta ( Currently 2.000.11b ) I get a false positive on an ATI Control panel component:

    File C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel\atiprbxx.exe is infected with probably unknown NewHeur_PE virus

    This happens with at least the 3 previous ATI Catalyst drivers, I haven't tried more.

    Same problem here with deep scanning.

    C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel\atiprbxx.exe - probably unknown NewHeur_PE virus

    Have sent 2 emails (with the file comporessed and password protected) to Eset (support), and no reply. This began with the last update to the advanced heuristics module (v.1.008 20040804). My concern is the lack of response from support.

    I sent them a false positive NOD32 found in Gamespy and they fixed it 24h later.

    I too got a false positive on the ATI control panel (with AH standard enabled). I also go a false positive on IDM.exe, which is the executible for Internet Download Manager (same settings). I sent the latter to ESET about ten days ago, but so far no fix.

    True to Marcos' promise the false positive has been remidied with a new Advanced Heuristics module this morning (v1.009). Good service and thank you, :D
