Yes, "File analyser deception" just changes signature of protected file from entry point. Strange that this option affects on the AV detection. Anyway, if it affects, this only means that analyses possibilities of such antiviruses are zero.

Few weeks ago I have tried to contact to few non famous AV that are generating false positives in virustotal, but still do not have any reply.. looks like they do not want to solve such problems...

Guys, just advice, use famous antiviruses like Kaspersky.

Take a tip for me! Kaspersky 10 is no so good like 7. Try this kaspersky version 7 and you'll see by yoursign. I tested them and I am satisfied with this

Unfortunately I have to add to this thread...

I have just made a Test protected program and sent to Virus Total and there are 5 false positives that get picked up by some big named AV companies.

I link to the test performed here: ... 1276037313

Guys, 5 false positives is a well result. With other protection systems you could get more falses. This is not a problem of Enigma, this is mistakes of antivirus softwares. This cannot be solved from my side, you should manually submit your files with false positives to antivirus companies and ask to solve it.

After submitting your file will be fully clear.

There is some information that can help you with submitting:

Here are some places that can online scan the program and let you know what AV companies are giving False Positives on the files:

I'll go ahead and list some email addresses and website forms for some of the particular AV companies to make it easy for you.


False positives:
If you think our scanner has detected a clean file by mistake please select "False positive suspicion" from the drop down menu above. Note that suspicious files and false positives need to be uploaded separately. Please make sure you verified that the latest version will still detect the file and it is not a solved false alarm at this point in time.


Pack the "infected" file into ZIP archive and lock it with password "virus" (without quotes) and attach it to e-mail.
Write the same password inside mail body, so Alwil virus analysts will know the password right away without guessing.
You can also add web address to that file (or webpage of the file/program) if it's on the internet.
Add your own note on why do you think that it's a false positive. Every info helps Alwil staff.
Send the mail to:
You'll probably get a reply mail about file info (if it was really a false positve) after some time.
If not, check the file with Explorer extension when new VPS is released.
This way you'll know if the false positive was fixed.
Until then, you can add the "false positive" file into exclusions:
Left click on "a" ball next to the clock and select Standard Shield.
Click Customize... and select Advanced tab.
Now just enter full path (path plus filename with extension) into the line and press [Enter] on keyboard.
This will exclude the file from scan, so you can use it untill false positive is resolved. Do this with caution or if you're 100% sure that the alert was false positive for that file.
Alwil staff deals with false positives very fast, so they are usually fixed on next VPS update, or even immediately if the false positive is found in any widely used program.
Try to address false positives directly to Alwil virus submission mail and not here on forums. This way the false positive is solved faster.

AVG Antivirus:
Put "False Positive" in the subject and explain the false positive.

Hello Enigma

Thank you very much for your response and for the time you have taken to set out the links. I will certainly make sure I follow your advice and upon release I will submit the false positives.
