avast F/P on Cyberlink's DVDLauncher as Win32:Malware Gen

I received a "virus alert" this morning, after avast updated to database 110725-0.   the file in question has been on my system for years (ever since I first got it).  I've sent a copy of the file to avast for its analysis/consideration, so that hopefully, the f/p will be corrected "soon".

posting here to let others know about it, in case they encounter the same issue.

Here's a link  to the analysis of virustotal.

for those not familiar with GDATA, it's a "superset" of Avast... so anything that avast finds, GDATA will also (but not necessarily the other way around).

as such, 3 of the "4" detecting anti-viruses are the same here.
