Kingpin.exe Trojan warning and Delete

I got Kingpin as a gift from a friend through Steam. After Installing I went to play. As it was Loading my Ad-Aware went Nutz Reporting kingpin.exe as a Trojan Win32Generic!BT. I have already started all the third party BS to get help but interplay seems to be worthless. I've poked around on other forums and news to see if its a False Positive error but, with the way my security is setup it WILL NOT let me play the game. Before I assume its a False Positive it would be nice to get some feedback from the Egghead staff or anyone else that can say without a doubt its a false Positive or that its ACTUALLY a Trojan that is embedded.

I know the game is old but this is one of those times I'd rather have other input before by passing.

running it on win 7 64bit home Intel Based Machine

I contacted Steam support, here is their answer:

Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

Your anti-virus software is falsely detecting a virus in the game.

You will need to wait for an update to the anti-virus software before you can use it and the game at the same time.

You may be able to create an exception for the game so you do not have to disable your anti-virus to play.
