This thread is good example of analysis in action. I hope that at least one reader has learned or refreshed a skill. We needn't be slaves to system or security utilities when careful examination of an error condition is equally effective. Thank you guys, Dark Assassin (+1 pending some spread) and DJGeneration (+1).

Change what has been an excellent firewall and AV because of a single false positive? Much rather have several of those than a single false negative .

Just think of Antman as the Thinking Man's Thinking Man ...

Or as somebody once said,

The only difference between you & me is that I have the power of mind-over-matter, and you have no mind and it doesn't seem to matter ...

Well, you can't fool me, I've seen you thinking .

Thanks, damoh. Let's see where this ends up. I'm hoping for a false positive. OTOH, I've realized that my use of the installed software does not involve use of the OCX, so that may be why I haven't had any problems if it is indeed infected.
