Nick.. if this not a false positive, why would you want to keep it and compromise your backup?? I would delete it..

Nick,

Don't forget that the XP mode is just that - XP, it has all the security issue potential that the full version has ...

Run all the anti-malware that you would in a real XP in the Virtual one - unless of course you are using the Virtual XP as a test environment

Saying that Backups that use compression can play all sorts of tricks on Heuristic Scanners - better to be safe than sorry though - boot up your live XP mode do a full deep scan from inside the virtual machine and when your sure that it is clean replace the backup

It might just be a FP. Avast also picks up XP mode as a FP in some cases.
