There are a number of possible explanations: 1) There are simply byte
patterns in the client matching that virus's signature, 2) You downloaded
the client from an (unauthorized) mirror, 3) Something else on your machine
infected the client. Somebody needs to try verifying this on a clean
machine... and please, in case you somehow missed all the previous messages,
