A nice little False Positive.....

Just to show you that not all alerts are necessarily malware....

This is an .ISO copy (created using IMGBurn) of the original GIGABYTE Drivers DVD that accompanies the GA-P55A-UD3R motherboard. A scan of the original DVD contains the same FP. GOM = Gigabyte Online Manager utility.

I hate false positives, but Security Essentials has very few of them (compared to Avast!).

I get almost zero FPs from Avast? Malwarebytes is more likely to give one for me. I just use the Virus total uploader and see what 40+ AV think
