McAfee and Ad-Aware and False Positive?

I just noticed that McAfee security center quarantined a number of files on Christmas eve during a full system scan. They all appear to be related to Ad-aware. They were identified as generic.dx (trojan).

The files in question are aawlic.exe, ad-aware2007.exe, ad-watch2007.exe, hostfileeditor.exe, lsupdatemanager.exe, processwatch.exe and registration_helper.prg.

They were all in C:\program files\lavasoft\ad-aware2007\.

I am assuming this is a false positive related to a definitions update but want to check. I tried to upload the files but McAfee reported they were too big to send. I have had Ad-Aware installed on my system for about a year and scan my computer everyday.

Thanks in advance for any comments
