Trojan:Win32/Peals.F!cl detected in HelpMan.exe

Windows Defender just reported detection of this trojan. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a known false detection?

This is reported for version 7.32. I also checked the installer and Windows Defender is still reporting the trojan detection in the installer file.

So... I uploaded it to VirusTotal.com and checked it. Nothing is reported as detected. ???

We will check this but it is definitely a false positive. The installer is checked every day. Also, we are running Windows Defender on all our machines and nothing is being detected. It is highly unlikely that you have anything to worry about here -- unless the infection has happened on your computer. That is much more likely, unfortunately; otherwise Defender would be reporting this everywhere. 8)
