:thumbsup: Hi! I don't know if I'm on the right board....8 days ago I had to apply Application Recovery, losing most of my files. I have an HP 7955 and Windows XP. I have been downloading, bit by bit, all week, trying to pre-empt for downloading SP2. I'm not really knowledgeable about this. I had most everything from Software and Drivers download page...Last night I ran McAfee virus scan. (I'm a subscriber.) Anyway, no viruses, but 5 "potentially unwanted programs". It seems they are ones that I just downloaded from the HP site. I couldn't clean them; I just quarantined them. Do you think this will interfere with downloading and running SP2?

:thumbsup: Just thought I'd post the response I got from HP support:

When an Anti virus software is unable to detect the type of file or the
file does not exist in the database of the Anti virus software, it
detects it as suspicious script or unwanted programs. This behavior is
normal and you need not worry about it.

So, I listed the ones found and sent it to them.

Any input still appreciated.

:flowers:

Some AVs will show some scripts, and programs, as potential viruses, even though they aren't.
If it's a site you trust, don't worry about it.
