It was detected in 64 bit system?  The behavior a limited funtionality in 64 bit systems, I dont know how it affects its detections in these systems

anyone minds describing how this is related to the behavior shield ??? >>> sounds more like heuristics to me, from either the file or the web shield...

This signature name indicates it was a behaviour shield detection Win32:SuspBehav-E (dedicated to the behaviour shield and currently only Win32:SuspBehav-A to E suffixes) as mentioned in another topic by one of the Alwil team, Maxx_original if memory serves me well.

It's not mentioned anywhere that the behavior shield is involved (you got pm)

Yes, it is behavioural detection (run under emulation), based on the sensitivity of the Heuristic level of the resident scanner rather than specifically the Behaviour Shield.
