I've noticed that this newest version is giving false positives though. I installed in a machine and it's reporting all these viruses that are not viruses. For example the jusched.exe for java is being reported as a virus, there are some quicktime files, msmsgs.exe, and various other files that regularly update/connect to the internet are being picked as viruses. Is there a fix to this? This is going to be a problem if it continues.

It's detecting them as downloader trojans. I can't remember exactly which one. It's on a computer that is not at my own house so I can find out exactly if I must. I set it up for someone and told them I'd get to the bottom of it and let them know what to do. Thanks for the help.
