NOD32 shows Plus 5.10 as virus too (source). One in 36 (source) is not a major problem

As usual, only users will be able to show them that is not malicious or "unwanted". Until then, I suggest people use a good
anti-virus

NOD32 is a perfectly acceptable Anti-Virus to use.

Acceptable is not good. A good antivirus wouldn't just label something malicious and would take time to investigate. While this isn't as common, it is still possible to say no antivirus is good.

When 2.7% is a lone,single minority then someone has to call shenanigans

Eset actually doesn't label Plus! as a virus or even malware in general, they use the term potentially unwanted. Scanning for potentially unwanted items is optional and set during setup. VNC-like services have been among the same category too.

Where I still use antivirus NOD32 is still my favorite :p.

Of course, NOD32 being the first anti-virus to falsely identifiy a program as a virus.

When the results of these tests are shared with other AV programs, this is how a reputation spreads. One user sees it as a virus, tells another, they flag it their AV.

If my AV detects a file as suspicious (and I know for certain nothing about it should be flagged), then I find a better AV or report the file as safe, as you should do.

I see. I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
