Is the PC version of Puzzle Quest a virus?

I got it for free from Gamefly, but my Avast says it's a suspicious file that couldn't have any malware activity detected. I also scanned the file and it says no threat. But then I do a Google search and find that Puzzle Quest.exe can be adware and even a trojan. I haven't played it yet, should I get rid of it?

Bump. I checked the board for this game and saw nothing about it but just making sure.

Avast is a terrible antivirus and probably flagged the game as a false positive. It's even mistaken its own update server as a harmful site: http://img.thedailywtf.com/images/12/q3/e13/avast.JPG

I'm just going to use this image now whenever someone claims Avast is a good AV.

As Rex said, Avast isn't that great. Uninstall it and use MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) along with Malewarebytes and maybe CCleaner too.
