explorer.wav was 0 bytes. Not sure what that's doing on my PC, but it's an FP.

PhotoShow.scr is a small file that comes with the "SimpleStar" software that you get when you develop film at drugstore like a Walgreens or a CVS.

Thanks! :angry:

Both are heuristic hits .

The first is to keep files from being named reserved words (common malware tactic) . It is a good thing that your file got nabbed because that indicated that this heuristic method is working .

The other is a common malware name and location . It was a lack of research on the part of SimpleStar that led them to choosing this name or an intentional use of a known good file name .

Could you zip and upload the second file for me (PhotoShow.scr) ? I need to check to see what it has for version information .

We will be adding an extra piece to the heuristics that skips these hits if their is legit version info , that will allow me to keep this def while missing your file .
