Can someone please explain why wselect from Horst Schaeffer's software pages is being identified as malicious?

If it's the site being blocked (although it isn't blocked for me, and I'm using the latest database), please read and follow the instructions in this post and post the requested information in a new topic here.

Good point, Exile.
I may well have misunderstood the OP's request -- perhaps it was the website, not the software -- he thought might be blocked.

Thanks, too, shadowwar, for checking on the files.

thanks for replying! it is the file wselect.exe, not the site. I will read the guide on false positives and look further into weather or not the file is infected. Thanks again.
