Hello. I have recently downloaded and ran a scan using McAfee Stinger, and it pinned my gameinstaller.exe file in my RealArcade folder as being the FakeAlert-Rep virus. However, I have ran multiple scans with SuperAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials, and all of them showed that there was no infected files. Is this a false positive or is my system really infected?
