Am I the only one that doesn't see anything?

Tek, you have your profile set so that only those whom you have friended can see anything. If you linked to a pic in your blog or CD area, we can't see it.

I can't seem to make it public. When I edit it it says I already have an album by that name. So I have no idea how to make it public.

Well that was one of the dumber things I've been forced to do on a forum. I had to edit the album and change it's name in order to make it public.

Let's try again.

Many times a source of false-positives is a virus reference file in one antivirus....being detected by another antivirus.

I've never seen a virus reference file, that is part of the program running, detected as a virus. I am going to have to say that is a bug/glitch/malfunction/screwup...that will quickly be fixed!

Tek, I've done a lot dumber things than that. It isn't something you would have noticed unless you were on the outside looking in.

I would be curious to know what is in the file that set off the warning, and wouldn't give it a pass simply because it was in the program directory.

I've used Malwarebytes. I don't think it's a very good program. I caught a virus a couple of times on a few different computers, and it did not help me get rid of them. Their website has other effective software that does, though. What exactly is that program supposed to do? I know it's an adware removal system, but what makes it different from, say Norton or Avast?
