    Default Mcafee

    Using the 2007 version of Mcafee Internet Security Suite. Having nothing but Windows XP, Mcafee and Spybot installed I detect CoolWWWsearch and CoolWWWsearch.toolbar. Are they false positives. I`ve already harassed Mcafee about this but they were no help.

    Hi there.

    No way of knowing Mcafee's possible F/P's, however if you would like us to check a Spybot-S&D log.

    Spybot-S&D version 1.4
    Version 1.4 :Systems Supported
    • Close all browsers
    • Open SpyBot, check for and get any updates available
    • Check for problems and fix everything found in red
    • Then on the toolbar menu select mode and switch to advanced mode, on the left lower down select tools, and view report, ensure all the options are selected near the bottom except
    • Uncheck[ ] do not report disabled or known legitimate Items.
    • Uncheck[ ] Include a list of services in report.
    • Uncheck[ ] Include uninstall list in report.
    • Now select (near the top) view report.
    • Press export in the save in box choose a place such as your my documents folder, then in your next post near the bottom select the "browse" button; navigate to and attach or post that report.

    Thanks UnknownFate
    These appear to be false positives on SpyBot's part.
    But lets wait for our detections team to respond, they should post within a few days.

    Hi,

    thanks for reporting. These false positives will be fixed in the next detection update scheduled for the end of the week.
