This looks like false positive (also called a false alarm). The MD5 signature matches my system, and the same file (bleachbit-0.9.6-ns-setup.exe) scanned with 40 other antivirus programs produces no alarms.

Alternatively, download the newly-available installer which is digitally signed for BleachBit version 0.9.6:
http://bleachbit.sourceforge.net/download/windows

Or the digitally-signed installer for BleachBit 1.0 beta
http://bleachbit.sourceforge.net/news/bleachbit-10-beta

Can you help with this problem?
