    I was totally not amused when McAfee Virusscan alerteed me that the file sbautoupdate.exe in Spyware Blaster was infected by the W32/Gaobot.worm.gen.e worm. Has anyone an explanation how this could happen?
    Thanks so much

    It has been classified as a McAfee false positive. Please inform McAfee about this on behalf of all McAfee and Spyware Blaster users!

    regards.

    Since this thread is almost a year old....I'll assume it's a non issue for the thread starter regardless of Kav's latest data....and close this thread.
