Just wondering if others are getting false positives when trying to download DShutdown?

I use Vipre Corporate a s a firewall/spyware/AV and when trying t o download DShutdown it refuses to allow me to download. I am sure the program is ok and w ill be reporting it as a false positive but was wondering if others are having same issue?

Antivirus Note: Some antivirus programs may classify this as a potentially unwanted program (though not as a virus or malware) due to its ability to shutdown and wake up machines remotely. This is a standard warning for any program with these abilities.

Most of the AVs report it as "Risktool" or "PUP"
