A few minutes ago, this program tried to run, but was blocked by my antivirus software. The big question is whether this was an official FR instruction or what would have caused it to run and why ? I was using the f3000 when it occured.
Any ideas ?

Tool.exe is an executable used by PowerSDR to flash firmware to the FLEX-5000 and FLEX-3000. It is not malacious and your AV software has incorrectly identified it as malware. This was a false positive.
