I am running ComboFix on a Dell Dimension 4550 with XP Pro SP3.

I've run into this a couple of times before. This time I need to make sure because one of the real time scanners being reported as active is: VirusRanger 3.2.

I am unable to find any reference to VirusRanger in my Registry or Hard Drive.

Is this a false positive?

Where, and how, can I find the reference to this being active? How do I remove this if it is a false report?

If you suspect ComboFix is falsely detecting a legitimate program, please report it here.
