    Running Windows 7 Pro with ESET SS 5.0

    Tried the normal channel for fixing this but keep getting
    messages back from Customer Care that don't apply to
    the problem.
    Here is what I get when on the masm32 board:
    the masm32 web site address: hxxp://www.masm32.com/board/index.php
    The false positive occurs when I am creating a message.
    masmforum.com/~masm32/board/smileys/mforum/cool.gif
    "Cool.Gif" keeps changing to something else.
    Makes me think this is not a false positive.

    I am able to work around it but it needs to be fixed.

    Edit: URL obfuscated to prevent users from getting infected in case the detection is not a false positive.

    Try it with the most current update, it seems not to be blocked any more.

    Thank you Marcos.
    I posted a message on the MASM32 board and no messages appeared
    about a virus from ESET. Thanks ESET for fixing the problem.
