No other antivirus detects a virus in decoder.exe, so I think it's safe to say that PC Tools moves really slow on this issue. You did make sure you have the latest definitions from PC Tools?

Just to let you know Decoder.exe was last time changed back in December 2007 for MediaMonkey 3.0.1.1124 RC6 so almost two years without detection, I don't think so. Send them full MediaMonkey Installation for testing not just Decoder.exe as user that contacted us also contacted PC Tools and they confirmed that it is False positive.

Also see clear description on Symantec "Backdoor.Graybird!gen is a generic detection that detects variants of the Backdoor.Graybird family of Trojans. " so Antivirus developers needs to fix their Scanning engine for Backdoor.Graybird variations types.
