thank you for your reply Alexstrasza
can i take it that all downloads direct from BC are safe?
It is a false positive commonly seen with FRST. The tool is fine to use if you downloaded it directly from Bleeping Computer.

All tools hosted on BC are thoroughly vetted to make sure they do not host malware or unwanted crap, so all downloads from BC are safe to use.

 can a file that is merely saved to my PC pose a threat?
 if yes, can the file be saved in a protected area and tested for threats?
 if no to , is the threat only activated when opening or running that file?
 if i save a file and then scan it at virustotal will that provide sufficient protection?

VTzilla: Mozilla Firefox Browser Extension
VTzilla is a Mozilla Firefox browser plugin that simplifies the process of scanning Internet resources with VirusTotal. It allows you to download files directly with VirusTotal's web application prior to storing them in your PC. Moreover, it will not only scan files, but also URLs. The scanning options are embedded in Firefox's context menu and download dialog, making the analysis process as easy as clicking a single button...Once you have checked the file, you will decide whether or not to download it to your PC.

Would be nice if they have one for Chrome, as I don't use Firefox often.
The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
