The Symantec anti-virus on my work laptop keeps giving warnings about files infected with funlove (funluv?) 4099. It cleans the file (90% of the time they're ones that I've written in vb.net, but I also got them for files in system restore). However, when I run Symantec on boot, it says the system's clean....and pop up another "Virus found and cleaned" warning a half hour later.
We've run every anti-funlove program we can find, and they all say there's nothing there.
I was told once that it was because some of my programs mimic some of the processes that funlove uses, but I've written vastly different ones that aren't anything like each other, yet Symantec still says they're infected. When it cleans them, tho, it renders them useless and they have to be recompiled.
Anybody have any ideas on what the @#$# is going on?
