You may have a point, but the results posted above show that only 3 out of 29 programs found any problem whatsoever. We seem to have had a spate of questions about this recently, and only one other that I can recall previously since the addition of the toolbar.

As for malicious software (Prevx1) .. well that doesn't say anything, which is less than helpful
"It is rarely a good idea to tell the public to ignore virus warnings", agreed but on this occasion we feel justified. I have asked the development team to check this thread and suggestions out.
and thanks ryklon for posting those results
