Default Cain&Able Shows up as trojan?

Can & Able shows up as a trojan on my virus scanner. I know it isnt a trojan and I have an idea of why it would show up as a trojan. But can someone clarify why it shows up as a trojan and that my assumptions for it not being a trojan are correct?

It's the intrusive nature of the tool that makes the antivirus flag it. If you got it from here, then no problem.

Cheers..

Looks good.
Not sure what antivirus you have on board, but here's a screen shot of three Av's that flagged on VirusTotal.

Cheers..
