I've been avoiding this issue for quite some time, but I feel like this is a good time to ask about it.
I have an external hard drive loaded up with most of my important and large files. for a few years, some of the computers that I have plugged it into have detected pretty much every .exe file it gets to as being a threat.
I'm honestly doubtful about some of this, because a lot of the files are downloaded from completely reputable sources. one time, I even downloaded Firefox Setup from Mozilla onto the drive, and plugged it into one of the computers it had issues with and the just-downloaded file was considered infected.
I'm getting tired of this and I'm starting to wonder if there's any way I can fix it. the drive is a Western Digital Elements SE 1TB drive formatted to FAT32 (sucks, I know), and antiviruses I've experienced this with so far are McAfee and Norton, though I don't use either.
