    W32/Generic.Worm! P2P Virus : False Positive?

    I was trying out the "Ultimate Boot CD v2.4" "Anti-Virus Tools".

    "fprot" refused to run because it was too out-of-date.
    "McAfee Antivirus v4.32.0 (26 May 2004)" ran.

    Found:
    "C:\Program Files\HijackThis V1,99,1\Hijack This.exe"
    "W32/Generic.Worm! P2P Virus. File Deleted"

    I then down loaded "Hijack This v1.99.1" and replaced the deleted file.

    What do you guys think?
    Was this really an infection, or a false positive?
