Umm, yes this tool does trigger anti-virus (infected? by a brute force tool?)

Not that I'm telling you to turn off your anti-virus though :-)   How well do you trust your sources of brutus :-)

Anyway, your antivirus is probably getting in the way (ie. deleting, moving to quarantine, etc).

If you really dont trust it, run it in a sandbox, etc, compare the MD5 sum with one of the exploit archive sites (ie. 
http://www2.packetstormsecurity.org/cgi-bin/search/search.cgi?searchvalue=brutus&type=archives )

thanks everyone for the responses. However I either cannot open the archive

the EXE file is infected with Win32:Trojan-gen. {Delphi} which is 
consistent with all my efforts to find a good copy of the file before 
posting to the list last week. I seem to be stuck.
