Well, if you have unzipped the zip file into a folder and have removed the trojan from there, you can safely zip that folder again with the filename intact. It will replace the original zip file though(unless you have already deleted it).

Hope this helps.

One thing to keep in mind...every AV program or other malware-prevention/detection program...is just as capable of false positives as any other.
