I'm suspecting a False Positive from SAS. This PConverter Video Converter is installed on half of Hewlwtt packards products.
I am not saying you need it but I don't believe it to be malware.
Let's get a second opinion, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:
In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.
I think SUPERAntiSpyware detected something it should not have. What do I do?

Many thanks for the response / links etc.
Your instincts were good; I also dropped a line to SAS and they tweaked their PUP definition database and the issue has gone away presently (I wasn't even to upload a file, SAS detected the issue at the very start of the scan, and didn't isolate a file / flag up an issue at the end of the scan, basically I could delete at the start, or let the scan run and not be able to do anything further).
I think I was a bit paranoid after the trojan (which if nothing else gave me a kick up the proverbial to upgrade to a paid antivirus over a free one!) but guess best to check with the professionals.
Again thanks for your help / appreciated.
