My Anti-Virus COMODO Internet Security, Alerted me that it found a Malware:

Location:
C:\DVR\Tuner_HVR-1200\MCE_soft_encoder\SoftMCE_Setup.EXE

Malware Name:
Heur.Suspicious@22502718

Action:
Detect

Date:
2/9/2010

Status:
Success



Is there any way that this file can be confirmed as a malware, or as a secure file?

Can any description be given for what this file is and is used for?

Many thanks, in advance. :flowers:

Oh and also!!! This is my first post. Hello Hello! :thumbsup: :trumpet:

Welcome to BC.


Anytime you come across a suspicious file for which you cannot find any information about, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
