This 'you show me yours and I'll show you mine'
type double postings are not helping to allay any doubts about the integrity of this exe file.
What it is clearly showing up is that the main stream anti-virus programs out there can't agree.
So in light of the many virus checking software programs that have shown it to have suspicious content I had it independently analyzed by the very reputable institution Secure Systems Lab, Vienna University of Technology
Although this is a very thorough method and took many hours to complete, they conclude with a caution that their results in no way mean that the file is safe to execute.

Click here to see the Anubis - Analysis Report for AMPstart.exe
- which took many hours to complete.
My conclusion is that the program AMPstart.exe is quite safe and free of malware (as I had pointed out in another post about this subject) but that it may contain code that may be misinterpreted as suspicious by a small minority of anti-virus checking programs who rely on Heuristics.
As a precaution for those who still might have their doubts use a firewall to block/report any perceived Internet activity. If your firewall is setup correctly then it should block and/or report all Internet in/out connection attempts by any running process on your PC.
