    Of course MSE would flag it, MS don't want you to use EZ Activator do they ? No doubt its flagged as a "pup-gen" type infection. Meaning potentially unwanted program. You downloaded from here so simply ignore it, its a false positive.

    Hello guy,
    This is just a false positive.
    A M$ is not silly when it launches it identifies as an activator virus, keygen, hacktool ...
    Rest assured, ez-activator is safe ...
    You may want to activate the product and then delete the KMS ... ;)
