I’m never going to nag a competitor having false positives, because all antispyware and antivirus companies have problems from time-to-time with FPs.  But the key is how fast they are corrected.

I was a bit surprised by a story in ComputerWorld where OneCare is deleting Outlook and Outlook Express files.  There’s two problems here:  Apparently in some cases, OneCare removing the entire PST or DBX file if a virus is found in one message (gulp) but more importantly, this was first reported six weeks ago by a Microsoft MVP.  And the bug is not being fixed until next Tuesday.
