    Looks like a well know and reasonably popular (free) Anti-Virus product, has detected one of it's own files as a piece of malware. This or similar false positive findings seem to happen to a lot of AV vendors from time to time, this is just the most recent in a long line.
    Can't wait for this to happen with MSE, now that should prove interesting.
