anyone had issues with the scanner picking up the QB_NetDiag_tool.exe file as infected?

this file has been on this machine for months, if not longer, has not been used in months, and it just snagged on it today. False positive or bad virus defs?

line from email notification:

X:\QBFiles\install\QB_NetDiag_tool.exe: Win.Adware.Outbrowse-1168 FOUND

----------- SCAN SUMMARY -----------
Known viruses: 4064254
Engine version: 0.98.7

thanks.

Please verify all files detected with Virus Total. They will inform Clam AV (which provides scan engine/signatures) to ClamWin, and Clam AV will either correct their signature for a false positive or prepare a signature for an undetected virus. Virus Total is a very good resource. It is now owned by Google and has lots of resources behind it. There should be a link to Clam AV from the main ClamWin web page.

thanks for the followup - do you have a link for Virus Total? I'm sure I could google it and find a false link in there as well :)
