    The following infected file was quarantined by my NOD32:
    C:\Deckard\System Scanner\20080826211058\backup\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\xscan53.ocx - probably a variant of Win32/Genetik trojan
    I checked the forums for anything similar and I suspect this may also be a false positive. I restored from quarantine and submitted to Jotti to be sure. NOD32 also asked me to submit for analysis.

    Are the heuristics just too sensitive? Can I restore this file, and set NOD to ignore in the future?

    Since I submitted the file to the labs as per instructions, the result has disappeared from full system scans, and must have been a false positive as I suspected.

    I would just like to thank elapsed for your help. :)
