I recently installed LabJack u3 on two separete systems, and also the matlab LabJack support, then shortly after got a virus alert from Windows: Windows has detected VirTool:Win32/BeeInject, a known virus, on your computer. I have McAffee virus scan running and up to date and this has not reported anything. Has anyone else seen this, or know if this report is related to the U3 installation? I suspect it is related to the U3 installation but is benign and Windows is just being fussy about changes to the registry, or something like that.

We run virus tests on all of our downloads before we put them online. We also periodically check them to make sure they haven't been altered.

What does happen from time to time is that virus definitions are updated or changed and mistakenly detect part of our driver as a virus (Known in the industry as a false positive). These are typically cleared up in the next virus update when they correct the issue. If the virus alert was related to the LJ code that is most likely the issue.
