    PSKill is a tool to enumerate and kill certain processes. While this is nothing malicious by itself it can be (and actually is) used in a malicious way by script malware for example. Therefor its detected as Riskware.

    It looks like the file is located in the folder for your BT Broadband. So it is most likely used for remote assistance by tech support when you call for your cable or ADSL support. I would recommend saving it into a zip archive or encrypt the file. That way it can't do anything malicious on your computer unless you unzip it or unencrypt it. Also, if you every need assistance from your BT, you can just unzip it or un-encrypt it. (Another alternative it to delete it, since you can download a new copy from sysinternal.com whenever you want)
