    I bought several MS Office Prof 2007 via ebay from different vendors - they
    came boxed with all the expected labels, security flags, holograms and
    imprints. When trying to install one, my Hips popped up alerting me to a
    file.
    Uploading this file lph.dll to virustotal shows that 7 out 41 AV consider
    the file a trojan/malware.
    I contacted MS support re the first file I received and was told that the
    license number was legit but did not get any answer re the lph.dll issue.

    Does anyone know what this file does, why some AV consider it malware (could
    be a FP) and in particular if it is part of the official installation file
    for MS office Prof 2007?

    A quick web search showed that some consider it a Trojan, others a false
    positive. The purpose of the dll seems to be in part to modify windows
    genuine advantage.
