I'm assuming this one? http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/delete-rename-locked-files-folders-in-windows/

An easy way to double check the validity of the DL, is to verify the MD5 checksum info against the DL. Unlocker provides that information on their page. My presumption at this point is that is a false positive by ESET. We are looking into it, as of this post. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

We do not actually directly link to the download, but confirmed and the md5s do match up on the site and the download from the site. I checked the executable against virustotal and since nod32 is the only one showing it as a problem, my guess is this is a false positive.
