Virus Alert

I was downloading the Portable Apps Lite and the Full version and my school Trend OfficeScan triggered a virus alert with the Virus/Malware PAK.Generic.01 and blocked the download of these files.

Why is this happening with Trend OfficeScan and not other scanners?
I'm worried that Trend is going to detect another virus in the apps installed on my USB drive.

Any suggestions to doing a scan without Trend sending alert messages to my boss to insure that this 'PAK.Generic.001' is not going to trigger?

this happens

false positives are common due to the methods used to compress the apps executables if you really want to test it I would recommend http://www.virustotal.com/
