Just ran CLAMWIN and it found SIW.EXE. I believe this should be a false positive. SIW is located here:

I've been using this for years and no other scanner finds it as a virus. Also note their explanation here:

...at the bottom of the page.

Update: SIW 1.49 uses a different signature; ClamAV reports nothing.
