I am just trying to verify if Format Factory is really malware or just a false positive.
Company: Free Time
Version Number: 2.60
Originally Was in a 38.1mb .ZIP file when downloaded
Format Factory is a freeware video/audio converter/encoder program
Avast detected it as: Win32:Trojan-gen
File ID: 3
The main exe file was quarantined by Avast the other day, and since the file is too large, I can not upload it to Virus Total or Comodo’s CAMAS; I have uploaded a false positive report from the quarantine in Avast but I am also making one here hoping to get a response.

Here are a few of the download mirrors for the file:
