My online test at VirusTotal shows mcafee not reporting any problems, so i think they have fixed their signatures.  If you are using the latest update from mcafee you shouldnt have any trouble.

I'm planning to contact McAfee once mouser releases a new version of Screenshot Captor to delete it as soon as someone clicks the download URL :P

I know Mcafee keeps DELETEING/Quarantining my Clipboard help+spell. I do have the newest vers and definitions. And I have told it to Leave CHS Alone but it removes the Exe every so often. (I don't notice till I go to use it and its not working then I see the icon missing from the tray)
When I have a mission, it consumes me; I will not be satisfied until the job is done. I have a strong sense of duty, and a strong sense of direction. Changes in the tide don't phase me - I always know which way the wind blows, and I know how to compensate for it. I get on poorly with people like myself.

Ok i've resubmitted another request to mcafee.. it may be that they fixed it for Screenshot Captor but are using another signature that is still alerting on CHS.

I think i'm going to write up a little blog entry and suggest that we start a boycott campaign against McAfee until they put in place some better procedure for vetting new virus signatures.
