Minion detected as virus

If you launch minion while ESO is already running, AVG 2015 antivirus free (run in windows 8.1 64 bit) will detect minion as "unknown" threat

I can confirm this as well. AVG2015 version 2015.0.6081, definitions 4392/10326 identifies Minion as "unknown" threath.

My AVG 2015 (build 6086, definitions 4401/10330) does not detect anything. Is the file marked as threat even if you update AVG to the latest version? If so, check test results which file is marked as suspicious and send this file to AVG for analysis: http://www.avg.com/submit-sample
Guys from AVG virus lab will check the file and if it is false alarm, they will make sure that this file won't be detected after the next update.

Minion is infected

This is a log from my Comodo Internet Security Pro

I downloaded and attempted to install Minion three separate times. I can't export the process log for some reason, but if I figure it out I'll update this post. In a nutshell, it looks like Minion is trying to sneak in a Trojan.

It's false positive.

Thanks for the reply. It was a pretty convincing false positive and the first time Comodo has been wrong (on my rig, anyway). I'll submit it and thanks for setting my mind at ease.

Got this last night and it caused a virus disinfection to activate. Any ideas on what I should do.

Add Minion to your Whitelist/Exclusion list of your anti-virus program
At best the whole .minion folder mentioned.
