CA Antivirus Detected Windows System File as Virus

Via @Bugbatter, I see that Computer Associates had a problem with a false/positive in a recent update. I have a lot of friends who use CA because it is included with their broadband account.

From the c|net article, Users upset after CA anti-virus detects Windows system file as virus:
"CA Internet Security Suite users should restore affected files from quarantine using the GUI. CA Threat Manager customers should search local hard drives for files with the extension .AVB and manually rename to their original file extension by removing the appended text on the original file name."

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
