I received the following message today:

"";"The file is signed with a broken digital signature, issued by: iAnywhere Solutions., C:\Program Files (x86)\Intuit\QuickBooks 2009\dbextclr11.exe (9384)";"Infected"

I have read several older posts that seemed to indicate that "broken digital signature" was not an issue, that detection of this was turned off by some past release in certain circumstances, and then I found posts that seemed to indicate that the presence of such an error was a legitimate concern. Which is it? Problem or something to be ignored?

I have downloaded the latest updates and have a new scan running. I'm attaching a couple screen captures. What action shall I take next?

Hello gbdg96067,

You can ignore it. It is not a threat.

Thank you

If we can ignore it as "not a threat", then why can't AVG? Why is AVG bothering to check for something that's not a threat, anyway? And most importantly, how do I stop AVG from bombarding me with these useless and meaningless warnings?

gbdg96067,
A file with a broken digital signature could mean the source file has been tampered with. AVG is merely alerting you to this, so you don't inadvertently introduce a compromised file or executable to your "clean" system. This way you can decide if the file is legitimate or not.


Sys1: P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3 (BIOS 3603), i7-2600k@3.5, 16GB Corsair Vengeance @1600+,
Corsair TX850w PSU, EVGA GTX660 FTW Sig2, 2x Corsair Force III 120's RAID0 (boot),
1 x Seagate 1T 6GB (data), Win7x64 Ult. Case: HAF 922 / Win8 Pro x64

Sys2: P8Z77V-LE Plus, i5-3570k, 16GB RAM, GTX560Ti DS SC, Intel 520SSD...

Is it still true that getting the message "The file is signed with a broken digital signature, issued by iAnywhere Solutions..." is not a problem. And if it is not a problem, how do I get rid of the notification every time I scan?

Generally still true. If you prefer not to uninstall the program with a broken digital signature, you might be able to stop notifications like this:

So can you tell me what iAnywhere Solutions is??? The file: dbextclr11.exe shows up as an extension of my quickbooks. If I end the iAnywhere solutions in my task manager the threat disappears! I don't want a threat coming up in my scan if it's nothing! Last time it messed up my quickbooks and I had to reload and now it's back. I don't think something's right with this! Help
