Possible False Positive? HP Support file

3 posts in this topic

Hi

SAS told me to update, I did, and then I ran a scan. I received this end result:

File threats detected : 2

Trojan.Agent/Gen-VB

C:\SWSETUP\APP\SUPPORT\HP\HPSA\6.1\SRC\FORBPC\REGKEY.EXE

C:\SWSETUP\APP\SUPPORT\HP\HPSA\6.1\SRC\FORWORKSTATIONS\REGKEY.EXE

This just seems to me like it must be a mistake. Those look like part of the HP support that comes with this type of the computer. How do I submit them to be checked if I've already quarantined them?

I have an HP p7-1235 with Windows 7 Home 64 bit, it's very new. I had run a scan 12 days ago (last time I had it turned on) and there were no problems. Also, HP had asked to run a HP Support Tune up at the time, is it possible that had something to do with it?

I was browsing yesterday and I saw what looked like a command prompt flash two seperate times so I got paranoid and did a sas scan.

I got the exact same two threats detected yesterday. I hope I didn`t jump the gun I already deleted both of them.

I have a hp desktop with windows 7 64 bit.

Hope someone else can chime in on this.

Those appear they may be false positives - did you do the built in false positive reporting? If not, please do so as we can investigate the samples.
