What program is alerting you to Prcviewer and where is it located? Prcviewer can be a legit program used to alter a processes characteristics, view, kill, suspend and resume running processes. There are several variations and it may at times be detected by some anti-virus/anti-malware scanners as a "RiskTool", "Hacking tool", or "Potentially unwanted tool".
Such programs 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. Anti-virus scanners cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert you.
