False positives (false alarms) are harmless files or URLs that are incorrectly identified as malicious by the antivirus program.

Software programs that behave like malware or use identical file compression and protection techniques are susceptible to false alarms. If a clean file is detected as a false positive and blocked by the antivirus application, you won’t be able to run the program anymore.

If you think the antivirus application has detected a clean file as a false positive, please check the file again with the latest VDF update.

If the program file is still detected as malicious please submit the suspicious file.

If you are certain that the detected file is clean and that no verification is required, at your own risk you can set it as an antivirus scanner exception to omit future file verification.
