The .cnf files in the early windows 98 betas always shows up as virus ,
seems there is code within them that detect that way.

I doubt it. Have you checked the suspicious files with multiple virus scanners?

It's probably just a generic piece of code usually used for viruses. AVG once detected a "virus" in a 30-line Java application i wrote, because it used the OpenStream() function.

I recall there being something on OSBA about this once, unless it's something else, it was some old program for network administration...

What AV are you using?

AVG, on both Windows and Linux (although without always-on heuristic analysis on Linux - unnecessary for an OS that is immune to 99.9% of all existing viruses).

Then it must have some kind of generic scanner, too.
