Hello, this is possibly a False positive. We should double check it before we take action.

Lets' upload this file for a second opinion on what it actually is..

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
How to see hidden files in Windows

Please click this link-->Jotti

When the jotti page has finished loading, click the Browse button and navigate to the following file and click Submit.
<filepath>suspect.file

Please post back the results of the scan in your next post.

If Jotti is busy, try the same at Virustotal: http://www.virustotal.com/


NOTE:
For submission to a specific anti-virus vendor see Submitting Virus Samples: How to Submit a Virus.

hm, i don't use Bluetooth, but i use eclipse, and sometimes do android developing. it's not that big of a deal, as long as it doesn't slow me down performance-wise.
