Win 7 MSE detecting "Scanner.Service.exe" as Trojan

Question

Hoping this is a false positive:

 

Win 7 MSE with definitions from 12/5/2016 reports this:

 

Category: Trojan

Description: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.

Items:
file:C:\Program Files (x86)\StableBit\Scanner\Service\Scanner.Service.exe
service:ScannerService

Chris - Thanks.  Of course it was a false positive.  But now Scanner service doesn't start/work.

 

I thought I would be smart and take a copy of the "Scanner.Service.exe" file from an image backup (just 2 days before it was quarintined by MSE) and just copy it back into the correct folder, Reboot & be set.

 

Unfortunately that didn't work.  I used the "Remove" button in MSE and put the EXE file back from the image but now the Scanner Service is missing from "Services.msc"

 

What do you recommend doing to get the service back installed on my Win 7 machine?  If it's re-install the entire Stable Scanner program can you post the link to the best beta (and the beta version you recommend)?

 

Thanks!
