Hey kamy !

Click on additional options and browse to attach it (see my attachment below). Also can you provide more information about this jpeg file marked as malware? If you know it is a legitimate file, I can move this (or any other moderator) to the False Positive Reporting Board.

EDIT: moved to FP board here.

No worries. Reason why the real time detection and prevention didn’t pick it up is because that particular file was unlikely not executed, meaning it’s just sitting there doing nothing. But no problem, it’s an AOL file and the FP should be fixed when a Comodo virus analysts responds here (won’t take very long).
