Has there been any progress on this issue? We continue to receive complaints that Malwarebytes identifies these files as malicious.

The link provided earlier (http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_134071.htm) states that "This is not a virus or a trojan. It is detected as a "potentially unwanted program".

This is not malware - PopCap Games does not employ any malicious software. This is an ActiveX tool that is used to download and run several games at the user's request.

They might say its not, however uploading the file to virustotal will show otherwise. The file is malware.

As this issue has now gone by way of Marcin to be handled, I think it's a good idea to close this thread.
