Weird Virus Alert

I was going through the process of updating DS 4.5 to Version 4.5.1.6 and main installation files prompt a Virus warning via my Comodo Firewall.

The alleged virus '.Heur.Suspicious@1' is apparently embedded within a file called '_uninstall7200' as far as I can ascertain. Having done a seperate scan on the suspected files which came up with no issues I've ignored theb problem but the files in question can as far as I can see be deleted without any issues to DS.

    Yes, some firewalls/anti-virus get a little picky about the installers/uninstallers for not just content but the actual DAZ Studio application. This is usually because the installer does some network checking (for accessing the DAZ Content Management Service) etc.

    Heur = Heuristic, it sees a pattern of behaviour that, as Adam says, it thinks looks odd. It does not mean it's found a real virus.
