heh, fun fact: Microsoft Security Essentials is one of the few (quite decent, actually) AV programs that *doesn't* use heuristics. it also has some false positives, but they're more along the lines of "hurr, what's dis? you wanna let it do it's thing? hurr" variety.
in other words, it's more likely to "advise caution" instead of "warn user of threat" where there is no threat.
