Panda ActiveScan false positive with Nessus .nasl files

Recently  I checked mi winXP system with Panda online ActiveScan, and I
think it has found some false positive when checking some nessus’s .nasl
 files:

Virus:Linux/Test10879                                                       
    Disinfected                   
C:\Documents and Settings\FALSEUSER\Mis documentos\ FALSEPATH
\nessus-installer.sh[nessus.tar.gz][nessus.tar][nessus-plugins/scripts/port_
shell_execution.nasl]    

Hacktool:DoS/42zip                                       
Not disinfected               
C:\Documents and Settings\ FALSEUSER \Mis
documentos\FALSEPATH\nessus-installer.sh[nessus.tar.gz][nessus.tar][nessus-p
lugins/scripts/smtp_AV_42zip_DoS.nasl][42.zip]

I am curious about the first file’s “DISINFECTED” status. That’s a file I
used to install nessus on a debian box and I have  no intention on
reinstalling nessus to check if the file is corrupted or deleted, but just
want to ask for your opinion about this. Have you ever had your nessus
fuctioning or it’s  files integrity compromised by some anti-virus or
anti-spyware software?

Thank you.
