Troubleshooting Anti-virus Software Issues


When you run an
Intel Inspector
analysis, anti-virus software:
  • Reports attempts to introduce and execute unsafe code.
  • Possibly terminates application execution.


Intel Inspector
uses dynamic binary instrumentation technology to identify issues and collect results. Some anti-virus software products load a small runtime agent to monitor for the presence of malicious software. These agents may incorrectly identify dynamic binary instrumentation technology as malicious software.

Possible Correction Strategies

Check anti-virus software documentation for a configuration mechanism to treat the application and the
Intel Inspector
as trusted applications.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
