False Positive? (TreeSize)

After the last update, I got a hit on TreeSize.exe (which I've used for years). I downloaded the latest version of Treeseize from, installed and did a manual scan on the exe. Got the same hit. I did a google search on the Trojan that was claimed (Trojan.Spy.Banker-5684), then did a search on the files and reg keys this trojan creates. Nothing was found.

Prior to this latest update, I did not get any hits on Treesize...

try to scan the alleged infected file with alternative scanners. To avoid installing additional software you may try services like which describe how you may submit files for scanning via email and have them scanned several anti-virus packages.

looks like your false positive has been eliminated by the recent database update. Please rescan the file and let me know if it is still reported as a vius (please include virus db info from the about box)
