    Hi All,
    I have downloaded and installed Moosoft The Cleaner 2010 some days ago

    [http://www.moosoft.com/download ]

    Even if NOD32 v 4 warned me it was trying to install a PE heuristic potentially unknown malware, I whitelisted it since Moosoft The Cleaner is a well known antimalware.
    Some minutes ago I ran a ful system scan with ESET NOD 32 fully up to date and The Cleaner setup file is also detected as PE Heuristic potentially unknown malware.

    I'm sorry I cannot upload The Cleaner setup file to virustotal since it is over 27 MB size, however neither a-squared free nor MalwareBytes' AntiMalware detected The Cleaner as a threat.

    I'm pretty sure it is a false positive

    Cheers
