Probable False Positives For Win 2000 Server?

On our Windows 2000 Server where ClamWin was just installed, I'm getting:

C:\Program Files\Resource Kit\whoami.exe: Win.Trojan.Agent-309443 FOUND

E:\RemoteInstall\Setup\english\GX270\ZWinPE\i386\narrator.ex_: Win.Trojan.Kakavex FOUND
(this is in a RIS install area for Dell GX270)

Can this be confirmed as false positives? Any more info needed?

False positive detections can be confirmed by either uploading the file in doubt to Virus Total or uploading it to Clam AV (ClamWin uses the Clam Av scan engine/virus signatures). Virus Total will inform Clam AV if they are the only AV detecting a file so they can correct their signature. Clam Av will also look into correcting a signature that gives a false positive detection on a file that you upload to them. It might speed things up if you upload the file in question to both Virus Total and Clam AV. Clam AV is sometimes a bit slow in correcting false positives.

Virus Total is at on the web. The Clam AV contact page is at on the web--be sure to use the false positive link, not the report a malware link.

Thanks for using ClamWin!
