    Any antivirus or trojan scanner can turn up a false positive every so often.
    Pest Patrol has been under fire for some time over false positives.
    They do or did have a good definition base for reference on malware.
    Pest Patrol has been purchased by Computer Associates. Maybe CA can improve the program over time.
