Potentially unwanted tool: Application/NirCmd.A
I cannot find anything on this, but it never found it before.... If someone could please reply ASAP, because i think it may be harmfull if left uncured or remaining on my computer.

There are certain programs or utilities that may use it. We would have to know the location on your hard drive to find out why it is being found.

In God We Trust. It is the choicest compliment that has ever been paid us, and the most gratifying to our feelings. It is simple, direct, gracefully phrased; it always sounds well -- In God We Trust. I don't believe it would sound any better if it were true.

Certain files that are part of the combofix tool such as nircmd.exe may at times be detected by some anti-virus as a "RiskTool", "Hacking tool, "Potentially unwanted tool" or even "Spyware-Adware". Anti-virus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user or even remove them.
Such programs may have legitimate uses in contexts where an authorized user or administrator has knowingly installed it. Potentially unwanted does not necessarily mean the file is malware or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others.
