Question:
The antivirus tool marked an ".exe" file as infected  / containing malware.
Has this been reported before? 
Answer:
It indeed already has been reported a couple of times, that a virus checker marked a Gen Windows PTF, a Gen or an application *.exe file with the attribute “containing malware” or "infected".  

In all reported cases it turned out to be a false action / alarm.

  
Our proposal is, to send the appropriate load module to the vendor of the virus software and ask them to double check the qualification of this load module.
