Default Sinbad and the throne of falcon, virus detected?

Hi i downloaded the game
Sinbad and the throne of the falcon

and i checked with Avira antivir PE (updated) the zip file. it says that it may have a virus or an unwanted program. could any admin check this out?

I know that sometimes the antivirus programs make mistakes with old games and even have seen some threads for other games with the same problem and it is never a virus....
but anyway just to check it out.
thanks

I also submitted the zip file online to (Virus Total).
the result

is that out of 32 antivirus programs only 2 detected the file (Avira and Webwasher-gateway)
they detected the file as: DOS/NRLG-based.5 or Virus.NRLG-based.5
but no other program detected it (avast, nod32, mcafee etc all clean)

Is this normal? if so i would like to know more about the reason if any to learn more about this kind of topics.

If Nod, Trend, AVG, Housecall etc... say no such virus, I'd say it definitely sounds like a false positive from your anti virus, never even heard of that other virus program used, definitely sounds like a smaller one. Anyways I think you should be safe with that game, just from knowing the bigger anti viruse companies didn't catch anything.
