    I just ran a ZA scan, which I don't usually rely on for my main AV scanner.
    I have Webroot Spysweeper for a real time AV.
    But, ZA says
    bttray.exe programfilesdir+\widcomm\bluetooth software\gzip.exe
    is a Trojan : Win32.AdWare
    I checked CA Assoc. site, and they say it's not a threat.
    SS shows clean... I'm dnld Trojan hunter trial now, to let it check.
    Can anyone else add their experience or thoughts to this conundrum? Before I quarratine or delete it?
    Thnx

    Do you have Bluetooth software installed on your computer?
    Than its a false positive.
    Looks like something that is trying to use system tray icon (load a tray icon).

    Update: Google search bttray.exe is tray icon from Widcomm Bluetooth Tray Application.

    If its a false-positive, just exclude it from future scans. Bttray.exe is from Widcomm's Bluetooth Tray Application.As kr4ey has mentioned, do you have have that particular bluetooth software wold be the main deciding factor in determining if its a false-positive or not.

    Yes, I have the USB Bluetooth software installed, and Trojan Hunter also verified no threats, so I will add to exclude list.
    Thnx for replies.
