ESET deletes key file as malware

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

Thanks for this latest update. Once again the 'highly acclaimed'  ESET NOD 32 AntiVirus deletes a key file on installation, as malware!  (rxpGtnSim32.dll)
The error message says in part: "Not designed to run on Windows or contains an error". As in the past, if I disable ESET everything installs and the GTN works as it should. 

This time its more annoying. It makes no difference if I use ESET's "Restore and Exclude from scans" option. I have no option but to reinstall. 
So if I start XP 11.11 with a GTN 750 enabled a/c it deletes the file necessitating a reinstall. 

I have tried to submit the file to ESET  but it wouldn't send, saying tit can't find the file or it doesn't exist. Even after reinstalling and going to Program Data to selected it inside their "Submit for Analysis' routine.  I will try again and report back.

Meantime any comments?  Have others found this problem?  Does someones have an ESET work-around?   

Regards

Hi,

As usual it is a false positive, but it is very peculiar NOD32 doesn't allow excluding it? We do have tests systems with NOD32 and these are always excluded (imagine the number of times we recompile/protect our files per day when close to release...)

Maybe there is a bug in a recent NOD32 update? or a config file locked which prevents changing the exclusion list?!?
