    I have prevx edge installed, and no issues with malware.
    When I create a delphi 2007 project, leave it empty and just compile it, prevx edge still is quiet.
    When I upload this small exe file to virustotal, prevx there flag it as "Medium Risk Malware Downloader", and that happen with ANY delphi 2007 project.
    What can I do? Thats bad for my business (programmer, using delphi)...

    This may be happen due to outdate dated Prevx scanning engine on VT.

    Hello,
    I'm not sure why Edge and VirusTotal would have this different of results, but could you please send me a link to the Delphi program so I can investigate what is causing the false positive?
