    Question Emisoft finds trojan in Spybot

    I hope this is a false positive. Yesterday, a-squared free (Emisoft) reported Trojan.Win32.Genome.qrpm!A2 was found in C:\ProgramFiles\Spybot-Search Destroy\SD Shred.exe I had just updated all my virus and anti-malware programs. Malwarebytes' Anti-malware found nothing. Avast found nothing. Then I ran a-squared and it found the "Trojan" in Spybot. I put the file in the a-squared quarantine. I decided not to run Spybot until I get more info.

    Is this a false positive? If not, what should I do about Spybot?

    Thank you.
