The short answer is no, it is not a virus.

Sometimes, PE will cause virus detection programs to turn up a false positive for a virus in its scans because of how PE collects its data. If you add the PE folder to your safe list you shouldn't see this message any more.

If you are still concerned, just search through the forum for "virus" or "trogan" and you will see that many have come across this issue...I guess it means that you have a good anti-virus program!

Welcome to the forum Donald.

The reason your AV thinks PE is a trojan is because they take info off your hard drive and send that to a centralized database. You are asking PE to take hand histories off your computer and send it to their centralized database. Most AV programs can not tell the difference.
