I know CNET can't remove the negative reviews so I'm moving at fast as I can to update the version on download.com.
While I can't update every website in the world, I will upload a new setup later today so CNET won't have a version with the false positive connected to it.
The folks at CNET are pretty fast so they may even beat me to it.
Bits from Bill:
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...
...It?s not unusual for Anti-Virus companies to report ?false positives?. This has happen a few times in the past but other companies had quick responses and were anxious to fix their errors. The same is not true with McAfee which is now owned by Intel....
This mistake by McAfee came at a time when a brand new version of WinPatrol was released and widely promoted. I can?t begin to imagine how many customers I?ve lost because McAfee wouldn?t allow them to install WinPatrol. I?m sad to say many believed McAfee and will never trust WinPatrol. This is a great insult to their users and the entire WinPatrol community. Even now hundreds of copies of the falsely identified versions are still available on websites like CNET?s Download.com...
