    Default ACDSEE32.EXE False Positive??

    Suddenly today (worked fine yesterday)... "ACDSEE32.EXE is a malicious program and was prevented from running on your computer."

    When I click on the message the webpage ZoneAlarm
    take me to says "ACDSee32.exe has been blocked from creating a new process" & "ACDSee32.exe is potentially malicious. This is particularly true if the new process will load malicious programs or utilize an excessive amount of CPU time, memory, and other resources."
    Scanning ACDSEE32.EXE alone. with
    ZA...
    returns no issuesDid ZA just learn something new, is the file infected or it is (as I suspect, I false positive)?

    Thoughts?

    More than likely a false positive. I too received a message today for a program which has been installed for nearly one year and which has not changed.
    What you should do is go to www.virustotal.com
    which will scan the file with 30+ virus scanners.
    Then go to http://smartdefense.zonelabs.com/tmp...cReporting.jsp
    to report malware or a false positive/negative.
