Sophos reports suspicious behavior

Try to start my PA platform but it got stopped by Sophos. It reported that that it had a suspicious behavior, HIPS/RemFileMod-002 on the portbableappsplatform.exe, then it moved it to quarantine.I am using a computer at a different the library. The usual library I use has Mcafee any never has a problem. I use AVG free at home and it is fine. I have used this library before but a different computer and it was fine. I have the option in Sophos to authorize the file but not sure. Could it have picked something up from one of the other computers and only Sophos picked it up or is Sophos being a bit cautious?
Many thanks.

Re-Install

It is possible you picked up something. The PortableAppsPlatform.exe file is clean in all major antiviruses, so none have false positives in their current definitions, including Sophos.

I would suggest scanning your whole drive and re-installing the platform to be safe.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Re-install

Do I have to reinstall all my apps? or do I just have to re-install the platform? If it is just the platform, will the platform see all my apps in the e:\PortableApps directory or will I have to make it point to them somehow or re-install all the apps? How do I unstall the platform? Do I just delete the start.ex and the PortableApps.com directory?
Many thanks.
