Malware Report is False Positive

Malware classification is a "false positive"

        

Investigation by Avast has shown that the classification of our Pathagoras document assembly program is a false positive. It does not contain (and never has contained) any malware or trojan and is safe to use. A future virus definition update for your anti-virus software should remedy the false alarm.

The problem seems to be that Avast doesn't like .dot files installed in a startup folder, and automatically deletes them.
