    Prevx would most likely catch any new files from new programs it's a very common occurrence just as NOD32 use to flag any new build of Prevx and most other AV's do the same!

    Yes indeed :) These files were flagged because of maximum heuristic settings which literally means to warn on anything which is of a "young" age and not trusted. If users run into false positives because of their browsing/downloading habits with these settings, we strongly recommend that they turn down the settings because the detections are intentional and not true false positives.
