    issue with scanning a file



      At my work place, in order to use a file on our PC, i need to pass a security scan with McAfee and a site called virustotal.com, as a preliminary check.

      I need to use this file i also attached, which is located at this link : Ghostscript: Ghostscript Downloads     - "Ghostscript 9.19 for Windows (32 bit)"  - Ghostscript GPL Release"


      for some reason in the website virustotal.com - i get a virus free confirm by McAfee but i get an alert by McAfee-GW-Edition saying "BehavesLike.Win32.Tool.tc" , also just for mentioning on the 64 bit version on the download page it finds it free of alerts.

      my first question is this file secured to use? as i cant run it yet on my McAfee on my work place as they demand it to pass on "virustotal" as a preliminary check, so i did like to get a confirm decision by you guys.

      my second question is what is McAfee-GW-Edition and why the mcAfee finds this file as clean while the other one mention a risk?

      hope you guys can solve this little issue for me,

      best regards
