False positive on unwash.exe

Hi!

ClamWin detected Trojan.Startpage.gen-34 in C:\Windows\unwash.exe on my computer. As far as I can tell it is a false positive.
unwash.exe is the uninstaller of Window Washer. I googled this file and saw other false positives reported for this file (for instance http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=50440&goto=nextnewest http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=50440&goto=nextnewest). I also ran the online file scanner from Kaspersky (http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus.html http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus.html) and it didn't report it as being infected.

I have Window Washer 4.8 installed. I took the latest version (6.0) and the infection is not detected in the uninstaller (unwash6.exe) anymore.

Maybe someone else can confirm this false positive.

Cheers.
Fernando
