    Default YahElite showing up as Virus.Win32.VB.fq -- false positive?

    I downloaded YahElite today and before I could even install it, Anti-Virus reported it as this: Virus.Win32.VB.fq

    Now as many of you know YahElite has been around for many years and though rumors have gone around about it containing a trojan, they were never proven. So what I'm wondering is if this is indeed a real threat or a false positive. Thanks for the help.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    If you're 100% it's not virus, report it to http://www.zonealarm.com/store/conte...are_report.jspThis is the current description (useful as a hole in the head)http://www.viruslist.com/en/viruses/...virusid=163562Cheers!
