    I just installed PowerDVD ultra and it installed an executable called brs.exe. However, kaspersky tells me that this is a virus and asks if I want to delete it. I submitted it to online scans and some did indeed came back positive. They say this is a trojan, but I have no idea whether or not this is a false positive. Can anyone confirm this?

    This is the website I submitted the file to: http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/caa45e326300dd456642c4fd6559f2ec

    isn't it possible that it has been renamed to look legitimate?

    No it's not a virus. This is just one of 100 false positives from kaspersky.

    I'm not clear on whether you actually need it running at startup for PowerDVD 7 to play Blu Rays...

    the virustotal result you have posted in your first post is nearly one year old, try to re-submit the file there.

    it can be a false positive, but there is a possibility that it's not. some viruses like to use legitimate apps' names...
