What version do you have? (The latest is 3.58, and this particular IDE is 
only found in the latest one or online)

I actually also detect the virus in the NSIS zip2exe package, but not in 
the nsis198.exe package (both avail here: 
http://www.nullsoft.com/free/nsis/#download )

I'm testing it now with a few other AVs on clean systems to see if I can 
verify it (I'm very interested, because we were planning on using NSIS 
over at Tux4kids.org ;-)
