    Looks like a heuristics detection.
    Try to send the file to virus@grisoft.cz and write that its a FalsePosotive

    Hello,
    This cureit.exe is an older one I have in an archive. See the md5. Maybe we're talking two different files? a new update?
    But I'll send them.

    Very likely. CureIt is bundled with the lastest updates, so it´s an always changing file.
