McAfee Continues to Harm WinPatrol Users

Quote:
Two weeks ago McAfee changed one of their signature files and it started to tell all their customers our WinPatrol setup programs was a dangerous Trojan named Artemis!4FAE1D776481. A week ago I finally found the correct procedure to submit my file and report their “false-positive” error. I was told by an automated Email that their test was inconclusive and the file was being sent to Bangalore India for more research.
Bill re-created the WinPatrol setup program by purchasing a new install package called Tarma InstallMate 7. McAfee not does report a false problem with this new setup. If you are still a McAfee user, you can download the new installation file from BillP Studios Download Page.

Even better if you pay $3.00 for the windows disk when you order one from the factory, then wipe the HDD and reinstall windows as soon as you take it out of the box. It's not even worth letting it boot to the factory image

On the contrary to everyone when they say McAfee sucks... I've used it for 8 years without any problems.
I must be one of the few...
