So after you take the poll, Post what you used to test it with and results.

BTW, here's the virustotal link which says a squared will detect this file.

I disabled MSE from booting on startup and tested this. So I wonder whats up hmm...

Probably the reason why a squared is not picking it up while downloading for you.
