VHD VHDX and other virtual hard drives

Jump to solution

Can anyone tell me how McAfee Virus Scan handles VHD, VHDX and similar format files. Perhaps they are temporarily mounted and treated like a drive.

The reason I ask is that I bought a new computer a few weeks ago. When the new one arrived I did a full scan and then made VHDXs of its C: and 😧 drives. I left the VHDX files on a drive in the new computer. I am suddenly getting a virus alert from one of the VHDX disk images. 

 

Is this likely a real virus or is it likely to be a false alarm?
