I have been using InDesign CS5 for at least 2 years now. I booted up my computer today to work on a project. When I opened InDesign my antivirus software (Avast!) flagged the following file: "Workgroup Client UI.rpln". Avast! claims it is infected with "Win32:Evo-gen". It has [Susp] next to it which I guess means it is a suspicious file. This is the first time I have had this come up. I also find it odd because I have not used this particular computer with InDesign in a week. (I do leave the computer on and have a nightly virus scan). I did run a full scan using Malwarebytes and nothing came up.
I am going to at least take the precautions even though I feel this is a false positive. My question is whether this file is absolutely necessary in order to run InDesign? The only thing I do relative to any workgroup stuff is that my files are on a NAS connected to my home network. I also store files in my Dropbox folder.
Thanks for your guidance. Let me know if I need to clarify anything to help diagnose my issue.
It is required (you'll find it in the Required folder in the InDesign CS5 application folder (either Program Files (x86) or Program Files, depending on if you run 32- or 64-bit Windows). The file size here is 43.5 KB (44,544 bytes). I don't see a version number in the file properties.
