I was scanning my hard drives and this message appeared:


C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dnsapi.dll: [Win.Trojan.15123135] FALSE POSITIVE FOUND
C:\Windows\WinSxS\wow64_microsoft-windows-dns-client-minwin_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.17415_none_90eb58f92b43cedd\dnsapi.dll: [Win.Trojan.15123135] FALSE POSITIVE FOUND


I wasn't sure if it was a real virus, but decided to err on the side of caution and since I couldn't delete it, I edited the registry to remove all references to it.


By the way, the redirect on the False Positive report part of the website isn't working, it just sent me to an About Clamwin page.

Yes. - I've been getting this also. No harm is done, however, because it is digitally signed and ClamWin will not quarantine it. We can't do anything about it until Clam AV changes the signature. You can submit it to Clam AV as a false positive, or Virus Total will tell them about it if a couple of users scan it there.

The quarantine restore program needs fixing. If you use Clam Sentinel along with ClamWin, it has a much better quarantine restore program that is accessable from the Sentinel menu .
