I've recently started taking a look at QuickBFC and am VERY impressed with what it does and how it works.

However, I've noticed that after compiling a batch file and executing the resulting EXE that McAfee VirusScan pops up an alert that a .bat file that starts with the letters "bt" has been detected as a Univ.script/99a Virus and it promptly deletes the file! At the same time, the batch file I've compiled stops executing.

Has anyone else noticed or observed anything like this or have any idea how to troubleshoot this?

This is false positive, but McAfee doesn't respond to any requests.
