    That is not enough information to know if the item is in our detections.

    Please list:

    The operating system.
    Other security programs installed.
    Your version of Spybot and when the definitions were last updated.

    You might want to check your operating system here: Validate Windows so that Microsoft can assist in helping you out if necessary.

    Do you have an anti virus program or Microsoft Security Essentials installed?
