    Hi Tex,
    I'm going to take a wild shot in the dark and say the file is NOT infected. Most likely Winpooch discovered an .exe file from a self-extracting .rar file trying to execute in your Temp folder. Some malware is known to execute in your Temp folder and Winpooch sees this as a threat.

    I would let it run.
