    Exclamation Outpost Virus??

    Nod32 is picking up a virus in outpost:

    See the attachment...

    I don't know whether to delete it or leave it as it seems to be a vital outpost file??? Anyone have any advice?

    But when I manually scan that file/directory it doesn't show up???

    I would do a ms search in all files and folders for the opst_ui.dll extention to see if it shows up anywhere else.Then scan if needed.Run another AV to see if the detection can be repeated.I once had PC Cillan 2002 pick up on a vulnerability in Office 97 which was reported as an unknown virus.I traced it back to ms security for office updates.And after updating it was quarantined but could not be deleted.Can you quarantine the file?
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Did you try any other scans? Possible False warning.

    I am thinking because this because it is not sure that it is a virus but seems like a virus.. I don't know. I ran a scan again and it didn't show up so I am not going to worry about it.

    I see that only amon and imon are the only places where you can adjust levels - don't know if it affects on demand.

    Big Booger, it is a false positive

    See: http://www.outpostfirewall.com/forum...?threadid=1425

    lynchknot is correct in thinking its aggressive heuristics. Lower the level or exclude the file.
