McAfee virus detection deletes valid file

I am working with a developer who has written a custom VBA module for XP 
and Vista. McAfee identifies this module as a virus and deletes it, 
which renders a large part of our software useless. The module does 
create and delete some temporary files, and also sends a shell command 
that launches our Rev app. We don't know if either of these things makes 
a difference.

Does anyone know what McAfee might be looking for, and how to avoid its 
false positive? Norton's ignores the module correctly.

We are supposed to send this out in the next couple of days, so any help 
would be much appreciated.
