Which files?  Which threat?

Typically it is 'free' scanners that report 'heuristic' threats - this
is a known bug in those scanners - please report bugs in your scanner
software to your scanner software vendor: they will appreciate your help
in fixing their bugs.

We report this every few weeks to various free virus scan vendors and
every few weeks they fix their software and then a week later it's
broken again.
