Possibly a false positive: f951.exe

After installing the gfortran compiler within the MinGW package, compiling of source codes ends with an error. Some recherche has brought out that McAfee LiveSafe - upon issuing the compile command in cmd - deletes a file named f951.exe, which seems to be vital for the compilation process.

The f951.exe is part of the package:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MinGW/Base/gcc/Version6/gcc-6.3.0/gcc-fortran-6.3.0-1-m...

Is there a way to find out if it's really a threat or a false positive?

Thanks,

kind regards!
Stefan
