Malware found in latest SketchUp Free Windows 64-bit install

I just installed the latest version of SketchUp Free for Windows 64-bit and my anti-virus was blocking the install. I turned off my anti-virus and installed it, then did a scan.

My anti-virus just found this:

Is it something serious?

Is your antivirus is updated?

I am fully up to date. I am using the latest version of Webroot SecureAnywhere.

If you downloaded from sketchup.com it is clean. If your AV flagged it it’s probably heuristic detecting a false positive. This tend to happen with new binaries from time to time. AV’s usually have a page on their site to report things like that to have them investigate and correct it.
