    Hello,

    I develop several products in C++Builder 2007, and a few days go NOD32 started detecting a virus in my application just after I have compiled it. The message is "probably unknown NewHeur_PE_virus".

    There is no virus in the file.

    This affects my business. I already submitted it to the "samples" email address. Automatically submitting the file from NOD32 failed with no explanation other than "it failed".

    Can I do anything to speed up the process of getting you guys to analyze this problem?

    Please send the sample in a rar/zip archive protected with the password "infected" and "False positive" in the subject to samples[at]eset.com. If the file is part of an application, provide as much information about it as possible and enclose a link to it as well, if possible.
