If this were just some fly-by-night "watchdog" I'd agree with the 
likelihood of your "false positive" statement.

But I don't think that's true.

Yeah, sure, spreadsheets plus stuff like JPGs, etc. This stuff comes from 
all over the world, and many contributors on ENG-TIPS are from areas that 
are proven hotbeds of malware.

I've decided to look elsewhere.

Probably a false positive.

Might have something to do with spreadsheets being posted there?
