    I am not active in the AG community any more but I
had a python module flagged as a trojan today. Since
the AG software uses python I wondered if anyone had
seen this and/or if it might be a false positive.

    I'm running Windows XP SP3 with current fixes (including
the February updates). We use McAfee VirusScan Enterprise
and AntiSpyware enterprise 8.7i and I have today's DAT
(signatures), 5897.

    I have AG 3.1 software for windows. What is happening
is that C:\Windows\System32\pywintypes24.dll
is getting flagged as "Generic.gi" (Trojan), new in this DAT,
and deleted. On my backup I can see it is dated 9/22/2006 for
what that is worth. ;-)

    The AG 3.1 software will not start without the missing

    If you have suggestions please let me know. Thank you!
