Virius in game file supposedly.

I am trying to play an old win95 game. The game has a patch from the vendor. The exe supposedly has a virius and is quarintined automatically. I want to know how to allow the the exe to be run if possible. I unloaded F-secure and played the game for several hours. Then reloaded security and did a virius check to see if any other files were infected or affected, none were found. Im thinking this is a false indication and i would like to know how to resolve this. I dislike disabling security to play it cause my computer is hooked via broadband to the internet. Any suggestions besides not playing it or unloading security would be appreciated.

Hello Dan,

If you think that the file is a false positive, you can submit it to our Lab for analysis.

Our lab will be able to clarify the exact nature of the file. If the detection ends up to be a false positive, the file will be added to the white-list of applications shortly and not bother you anymore during your gaming time.



Best Regards

-Ben
