By unpacking downloadfiles, the program phpar2.exe starts. But it is blocked by Trend Micro.
Is phpar2.exe an unsafe program?

The "normal procedure" is to check it on Virus Total:

Hi @zwaard51, thanks for getting back. 

For your situation, we cannot be 100% sure that your file is safe or not. We need an exact blocking message you're seeing or you also can submit the sample file for analysis and re-evaluation here:

Hi zwaard 51,

Why is phpar2.exe goes running after a download i don't now, it is not a extract program and should run in DOS mode. See here:
http://paulhoule.com/phpar2/
So i think there is something going wrong there.

Kind regards,
Tom

The OP is looking for a second opinion about " what's wrong with  phpar2.exe"

Trend already flagged that as "malicious" but only Trend....

Thanks for helping out @Tom Emellot!

Hi @zwaard51, "phpar2.exe" is classified as a possible worm from herdprotect. You may see it here:
http://www.herdprotect.com/phpar2.exe-aee33da6ab5dc49bdda02f9850986a2a45842d72.aspx

Though it would be best to request for file reclassification from @TM_Linda above.

Hi TM_Gerald

["phpar2.exe" is classified as a possible worm from herdprotect ]  based on  3 detections, 2 of them being from Trend Micro!!!!

In fact we are back to the OP question....

Het probleem is dat Trend Micro de installatie van het programma phpar2.exe blokkeert omdat het niet veilig zou zijn. Ik heb phpar2.exe inmiddels wel geïnstalleerd en ondervindt geen problemen.

phpar.exe is een file die Trend Micro als worm herkend (malware). Omdat je online gaat sharen wordt dit als zodanig gezien als gevaarlijk.
