Hi, Everybody! :thumbsup:
This is my very first post here. I'm 52 and I don't know much about computers (still in a first stage of the learning process) so any little help is priceless for me. Thanks in advance. I hope I can help from time to time too, at least by sharing information.

(My computer is a Vista Home Premium Dual Core 64 bit and) at about 7:45 this morning, my Prevx detected mpeg2data.ax as malware while my Xara Xtreme 5 was downloading sample drawing templates. Is this just a false positive or said file may be corrupted? My Prevx can't proceed to the cleaning job (it starts scanning again and detect the said file as malware over and over). Could Windows be preventing the cleaning to protect the file? Could an intruder program be neutralizing my Prevx? I run my G Data already too and it didn't detect anything?
