Hi everyone,

I would like to ask if anyone could please help me with the following situation.

On a Windows XP media Center edition, Version 2000, SP2 machine, the "A squared"
http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/ malware scanner said that
"D:\i386\apps\app20460\imgvemver1.6.exe" was an adware file. It listed it as "Adware.maxifiles.f"

The "D" drive appears to be a partitioned section of the hard drive that is used to archive the system restore files. Windows warned to not delete or change any files there.

I left the file alone. I am guessing this might be a total false positive ? I guess I should report it to A squared, but I wanted to get some feedback because I am completely new to XP.

I did an internet search for "Imgvemver" but nothing turned up, and that's what makes me wonder. Spybot, Lavasoft adaware, Microsoft anti-spyware, AVG, and the Ewido scanners all missed this, if it really is something to worry about.

I turned on the "show hidden files" option, but windows would not let me see what is on the "D" drive, and I did a search for imgvemver and "img" on the D drive, and nothing turned up.

I would appreciate any feedback, I don't really know whether to remove it, or leave it alone. The treat was listed as "medium".

Thanks for your help.
John
