intelmain.exe blocked by Deepguard
About a week ago, AV started worrying about intelmain.exe. Deepguard complained that this file was dangerous or something like that. However, that file is supplied by Intel and is used to start its Desktop Utilities. F-Secure can find it at intel.com. I chatted with customer support and was told to send it to F-Secure in the download procedure used with files from porn sites and other nonsense. No, I will not do that because F-Secure should not be blocking known good files used by millions of people around the world.
I have a three-user license for AV. The file is still a problem on two systems, with AV sometimes (it's not even consistent) asking if I trust the file. On one system, F-Secure would not let Desktop Utilities start at all, forcing me to re-install; I am not pleased. I still have not re-installed F-Secure on that system. Anyone want to explain why intelmain.exe is a problem? This reminds me of some of the abuse Avira has perpetrated on its customer base in the last year. I am seriously considering a change to G-Data.
P.S. I also have three systems loaded with Norton and MBAM. They do not have a problem with intelmain.exe.
