    Well I tried running process explorer from technet Microsoft.com and when I extracted the zipp I got this from Prevx Edge.I am thinking FP after upload to VT 39 scanner say Nothing.Now I cleanup and downloaded from Cnet no Detection.I cleaned that up tried again from Technet and again detection.My suspect a FP but Not sure Now since CNet comes back clean.A heads to all just in case.

    I just downloaded the new Process Explorer 11.33 from Technet (using Opera 9.63) with Prevx Edge 3.0.1.8 active; not a peep. Installed without incident.

    thanks thats what I thought probably a FP.I Just noticed that at Cnet its version 11.32 and the latter at technet 11.33 is where prevx flags it.There must be something it dont like to give it a FP.

    Or PrevxHelp is so fast that maybe he saw your post and snuck in and fixed it already. ;) Thanks for the lead on the new version, BTW.

    Just saw this post now - please let me know if you do still experience any FP and I'll take a look at it, but the database may have fixed it by itself :)
