It's probably 10th email going back and forth and they keep asking me for registration email to move further on, although I keep explaining in those semi-automatic emails what the case is.

If, for any reason, you don't do your computer properly seated on a chair , please do take one and seat comfortably on it before accessing this :
Directory on McAfee site where free tools are available.
I was there getting a fresh copy of the excellent BinText utility (BinText303.zip) today, and noticed file (near the bottom of the list/page): warning.txt
I had a look at it:
PACKER DETECTION ALERT
The anti-virus scanner has detected a packer program. The file was not cleaned and has been removed.
Detection(s): 'PE_Patch.Stolen.d (compressed file)'
See your system administrator for further information. Copyright 1999-2007 McAfee, Inc.All Rights Reserved.http://www.mcafee.com
Their Anti-virus detected a packer inside their own file!
...and obviously did NOT delete it as file SharePointDiscovery.exe has the same timestamp 21-Oct-2010 09:04 of warning.txt ...
