    Today Ewido detected and quarantined the following files:

    C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\W32x86\canoni5503196\...worm.Delf.p
    C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\W23x86\3\CNMPV49.exe\...worm.Delf.p
    C:\JBPrinter\CNMWindows\Canoni550Installer\Driver2\CNMPV.exe..worm.Delf.p

    Since the Canon printer in question has been installed on this computer for over 3 years and since this is the first time any AV or antispyware app has found this, I think that it must be a false positive. What do you think?
