Re: MalwareBytes Premium Reporting Possible False Positive With a File in the Acapela Colibri Voice Bundle

The other point to make is that if you simply whitelist any program which gets a false positive, it also adds the possibility, however remote, of that program getting a real virus which goes unnoticed because you've told your AV to ignore it.
AV programs usually don't flag any given genuine program very often, and as Brian noted, they can usually rectify it within a few days. I can think of maybe three or four times in the last six years where I've been notified that an AV program (usually different ones) have falsely flagged a build of NVDA, including alpha builds - and given most users run ONE AV program, that's one issue in six years IF you happened to use one of those specific programs and the particular NVDA build flagged. I don't know how many AV programs there are, but for reference, VirusTotal tests against 88: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/
