libeay32.dll detected as virus?

Hi Guys,
when I try to install 1Password for Windows 1.06.202 on Windows 7 Professional 64 bit my antivirus Microworld Escan 10 detect teh file libeay32.dll as a virus and deletes them! I attached a screenshot of the log file.

How can I fix this? Is this really a virus?

Thank you very much!!

    libeay32.dll is a OpenSSL library, responsible for HTTPS communications. It is not infected with a virus. Your anti-virus "solution" is detecting a false positive.

    Alex, you just need to let your antivirus software know that that file is safe (as Stefan explains).

    Ok, I added the 1Password folder as an exception and now it works fine!

    Thank you very much guys! ;)

    Good to hear, peciot! But don't take our word for it. ;)

    Depending on what antivirus software you are using, updating to the latest virus definitions may help avoid warnings like this in the future.

    let us know if you have any other questions. :)

    Thank you Brenty!
    I updated my antivirus to the latest version and to the latest definitions, but if I don't add the 1Password folder as an exception, 1Password dont't work properly. The program every time says that I have to insert my license. I do it and every time it asks me again.
    Altought, if I set the folder as an exception it works fine.

    I've sent an e-mail to the developer of my corporate antivirus explaining the problem; I hope in an answer.

    Thank you!
