2/60, false positive?

Hello, I have tried to get a game from my childhood but there is no way to get it normally anymore AFAIK. Is [this](https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/e179bd5a17edf0458ffc9905e2f4abb59380db9c1851f2b83216b1b2b60ce707) a false positive or should I delete the file before I open it?

Well, the .EXE inside ( https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/a6a2c4331336b964b8d350c5e159be385fdb61eddd123a67d14319c6187e5134/detection ) is the only file that might have something. I can see in the details tab that it was first submitted in 2010. If there was something bad inside, you’d see many detections by now.

I also looked at the Behavior tab and nothing jumps out at me there.

The file is over a decade old and only has 2 detections, one of which is just for the invalid signature, the other is from an AV which commonly has false positives. The file looks fine.
