Does SpecEmu have malware?

Ill throw my 2 cents in

1) if someones software is being incorrectly flagged the author should contact that virus scanner company and ask them to inspect his executable and white list it. Doesn't take long to scan with virus total then contact the authors giving false positives.
2) modern virus scanners often include heuristic scanning because there are often so many variants of the virus its hard for the authors to keep up. Obviously being heuristic it will give false positives.
3) i don't know of any virus scanners that by default delete virus's. As everyone has mentioned it quarantines them.
