I've begun to consider going ahead and cutting out all files that show up as viruses even though they're false positives. Its not good policy to share files like that and I'm concerned one day these files could actually BE a virus but users will think its a false positive.
I mention it because one of my files "StartKitchenSink.exe" (the one that starts them all) shows up -- once in system memory -- as a virus. Comodo's antivirus is undoubtedly turned up a little high and therefore finds false positives but users shouldn't have to deal with this. The root file doesn't come up on any radars, nor does the tool that created the original EXE. Two other virus programs are much smarter about this, but I see the virus company's point: why not be extra paranoid?
I loathe Windows sometimes.
Whatever the case, I'd have to put them all in a separate archive of some kind and make that available elsewhere. This is so stupid because several of those files are extremely useful. AAST has no program like it that I can find. RockXP has some really essential system tools. This is terrible.
Any thoughts? Anyone?
