    Is anyone else seeing this fp:-

    C:\WINDOWS\I386\MMSSETUP.CAB/msmsgsin.exe -> Trojan.KillAV

    I've submitted the file for analysis.

    Topper..

    The same thing was also reported by a member at CNET earlier today. Whether or not it's a false positive, remains to be seen. Only an "FYI" kinda thing. o_O

    Yes you can. The file won't be found next time you scan.
