Hello, I'm new here, so this is gonna be kind of stupid, but when I was just downloading Fate: Undiscovered Realms, Microsoft Security Essentials popped up and said "Microsoft Security Essentials has detected (1) item(s) that are potentially harmful." I proceeded to open the Microsoft Security Essentials Home tab and it said "Trojan:Win32/Malagent". What the heck? Then it finishes the installation and when I double-click on the Fate: Undiscovered Realms icon it says

FATE Undiscovered Realms
The game is not properly installed. Please reinstall.

Please help me figure out how to fix this. Is there really a Trojan here, or is it a false positive? Plus, does this deletion of the Trojan cause the error message and the game to not work properly? I'm using Windows XP Pro.

Thanks Animal, I'm super new here, so you know. Also, this is to add to my first post:

I scanned the whole "C:\Program Files\WildGames\FATE: Undiscovered Realms" folder with SuperAntiSpyware, IOBit Security, AdAware, and Threatwork Alliance. None of the manual scans indicated any kind of corruption. Possibly there is a false positive in the Microsft Security Essentials system? idk
