[Suspected] Plugin is a virus ?
Hi. I've installed PC Tool AntiVirus and he found file "C:\Program Files\TC UP\PLUGINS\wfx\MotoP2K\MotoP2K.wfx" being suspected of HeurEngine.Packed.NSPack. I have no experience in checking those kind of things so I really don't know what to think about it.

What is the anitivirus that you are curently using?

I suppose that you got that plugin here? I believe a plugin will only be installed if you gave permission in installing it on your computer. However, if you are still bothered if that is really a virus, I think you should try out other antivirus programs such as AVG. Before, I uses ESET. I am happy and satisfied with it until I was given the chance to have a copy of AVG. And based on my observations, it scans your PC thoroughly than ESET, or any other AV programs.

Enough said, I recommend that you use other antivirus to check on your PC for suspected virus or infected files.

This does not say the file is a virus.
It says it's packed with NSPack.
Some AV companies use a heuresis that malware is packed more often than legit software. While the heuresis might be true, it flags many legit programs as suspicious and this is such case.
I suggest to use an antivirus that without such bogus rules.
