FreePOPs Detected as "Trojan.Agent/Gen-UsrMgr.Process"

Recommended Posts

I am a registered SAS Pro user. I also happen to use a free POP3 program - FreePOPs, which allows me to download my Hotmail and Yahoo email accounts via Outlook (it converts from webmail/http format into POP3 format). I have been using SAS Pro for several months now and Freepops for several years, up to this point without any conflict. I've just finished doing a fresh install of WinXP Pro on my PC, along with reinstalling all my programs - SAS has shown the new system installation as being issue free - but starting today, SAS keeps detecting freepopsservice.exe and freepopsd.exe, both required services for Freepops, as a Trojan.Agent/Gen-UsrMgr.Process.

I've unquarantined freepopsservice.exe & freepopsd.exe in SAS, added the .exe's to Allowed Items and the Freepops folder to Excluded folders. However, each time I attempt to restart the Freepops services or reboot the PC, SAS continues to detect and quarantine them in both First Chance Prevention and Scheduled Scans. Each time I go in and confirm that the files/folder is still set to Allowed, which SAS says it is, but the cycle continues. I appreciate any help anyone can give me with this.


OS: Win XP Pro, SP3

SAS Ver 4, 35, 0, 1002

FreePOPs ver 0.2.9 (see www.freepops.org for more info).

Any other info needed?

Thank you, Mike D.

Make sure you report it via the built-in false positive reporting.

Thank you for your response...I did.
