virus?

Hi people,
I just switched antivirus (symantec -> kaspersky) and now calibre exhibits signs of virus infection:
virus.win32.agent.cj in module calibre.exe\CORE_RL_zlib.dll

I saw in an old thread a false positive mentioned some time ago, but that was a different one.

Any info? I'm a bit worried!

I use semantic at work and it didn't say anything about it... hmmm Maybe I should try a different one.

It's a false positive.

notwithstanding, if I was the developer, I would be pissed off. What do you think? I could email kaspersky telling them about it...

If there's an easy way for you to flag it, then give it a go, but unfortunately, false positives just seem to be a fact of life - I've had McAfee (locked down on my works laptop, so I can't tweak the settings) twice delete my "Screenshot Captor" app when it (McAfee) has updated it's patterns & thought it detected a virus...

Oh I am pissed off, I now never install an anti virus program on any of my computers. And it's not just false positives, many antivirus programs prevent calibre from running at all on windows and I get help requests from people asking why it isn't running.

I believe people have told kaspersky about calibre in the past as well, it doesn't seem to do any good, but you're welcome to try

fwiw, I'm running Kaspersky v7 on one laptop and v9 on the other (upgraded from v7 yesterday). I've never had a problem running Calibre on either laptop. (Have had plenty of other problems with Kaspersky, mainly to do with my 3G modem, but that's another saga entirely) - running Calibre 0.6.23 (about to go to 25) in Win XP Pro SP 3
