Folks, please note there have been some reports of some Malware and Antivirus software giving false positives on various different types of "heuristic" worms/viruses against Showanalyzer.

NOTE that these are FALSE positives. MCEBuddy and all bundled software has been tested with AVG, McAfee and Symantec and IT IS CLEAN.

One possible reason for this "heuristic" false positive is that the antivirus when analyzing the software/code mistake the highly advanced commercial detection algorithms for malware algorithms and mistaken mark them as malware. Again this is a false positive. The software is clean.

Weird Norton said I have a virus "heuristic and I use HDhomerun with MCEbuddy + Comskip not showanalyzer. I reported it to Norton with live chat and they tried to force it to ignore with half success. Then just found this thread
