    Does anybody else get this, The Virus Total Website gives a positive result also 4/43

    Kaspersky IS 2012 says it is OK.

    Thanks

    John.

    I googled that file and it appears to be a Computer Associates file. Most hits say it is a virus or exploit file. Do you have any CA stuff on your computer?

    CA = Computer Associates

    However, even MS (Microsoft) uses them so I doubt that it is a virus from them. Noticed that that file is in your Blue Tooth folder. Maybe some Blue Tooth software or driver did it?

    Google that file and you will see lots of virus info on it. Some false positives some real.

    Tinderbox, the SHA1 for the file at VT, corresponds with the FP mentioned in this Avast thread link.
    You can see that at the linked VT result in that thread, a lot more AV's flagged it as malware.
    Just seems an FP, probably due to the file not being properly signed.
    I wouldn't worry as Avast, Avira, Emsisoft (and much more AV's) all give it a clean bill of health now.
