Anybody know why CPUZ downloaded from CPUID's site would be detected to have a trojan horse? I see that the last two releases have this. I use AGV av. The av placed the new download in the vault.

CPU-z 142 zip has Trojan horse Generic9 AZBA
CPU-z 144 zip has Trojan horse Generic9 BHTS

According to AVG. I didn't try to open the second one just let it set in the vault.

It's probably a false positive. Whenever you see "Generic" it means that it hasn't matched it to a particular virus/trojan, just that the heuristic has identified some part of the code as looking like it might be a virus/trojan.
