False Positive on REG-key "HKCU\Software\AVS"


Recommended Posts

Rec'd false positive on Windows Registry key "HKCU\Software\AVS" installed/associated by app "AVS Video Tools v5.6". I exported the regkey and submitted to VirusTotal.com. It scans clean there: File "HKCU_Software_AVS.reg" received on 10.30.2008 06:05:32 (CET)

Also scanned with "a-Squared" and "Ad-Aware 2008 Pro" (latest updated signatures) ... clean also.

This regkey existed during previous scans and only on latest is it now encountered. It is attached with password: falsepositive

Thanks in advance for your time and efforts.
