    Default False Detections?

    A few weeks ago, ZoneAlarm began reporting that it had found the trojan "Win32.Trojan.Agent.97836.A" and in the "Detail" section of the "Scan Results" stated the following:
    File: C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins\avs\convolution.ape
    Directory: C:\Program Files\Winamp
    I opted to quarantine and was rewarded by having my WinAmp install nuked. After learning that ZoneAlarm was likely misidentifying an unrelated Windows Registry key as a different trojan (this had happened a day or two earlier), I figured that I'd risk restoring WinAmp from quarantine. Doing so didn't restore my WinAmp install, so I re-installed it from a newly downloaded install file (from WinAmp). To this day, ZoneAlarm still identifies WinAmp as a trojan.

    Today, ZoneAlarm informed me that it had found the trojan "Win32.Trojan.StartPage.21002" and in the "Detail" section of the "Scan Results" stated the following:
    File: C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\FP_AX_CAB_INSTALLER.exe
    File: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\uninstall_activ eX.exe
    I have a feeling that this is another false detection.

    Has anybody else experienced either of the above situations?

    Thank You
