   It is what the virus industry calls a false positive.  There is nothing wrong with Add/Remove Pro.  My guess is that it is because Add/Remove Pro is an older program.  There is not much you can do to avoid this.  You can report it to Mcafee if Mcafee has a place to report false positives.
   This problem first showed up in four lesser known antivirus programs many years ago.  Back in those days I reported it to them all and only one company wrote back and confirmed that after testing Add/Remove Pro that Add/Remove Pro was clean and that they would correct their software.  The other companies evidently did not test Add/Remove Pro or correct their software.
   Add/Remove Pro is safe to use.
