Do you mean it is wrong because it is a supposed to be an  anti-spyware
program and not an anti-virus program and it is a trojan itself, or because
he misspelled appears?  :)

It does not recursively self-replicate.

It doesn't have to recursively self-replicate. A virus must replicate
intentionally. It doesn't have to infect more than a file from a current
folder and it's still a virus. :) The OP is wrong calling the program a
virus, as it's nothing more than a trojan.

Not file system recursion, replication recursion. If the offspring can't
replicate, the parent did not virally infect their hosts with functional
copies of itself and therefore has failed as a virus. Sometimes called a
'failed virus' it is no more than a trojan. True, it only takes one
viable offspring to qualify - you don't have to virally infect more than
once, succesfully.
