False Virus Warning

Avast gives me a warning when I attempt to email an old file, mouse.exe.
When I scan the file by right clicking no problem.

I keep old sources on my system. When I was running AVG. it would always
flag a file in a logitech directory which contained files for mouse
development. These files were distributed when windows were just things
you washed occasionally!!

I suspect in both case the alert was from some sort of heuristic test.
