Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta detects ATL.DLL as spyware?

Looks like someone got their MD5's in a twist. Be careful with the new Beta. The screenshot below shows the new Microsoft Spyware Tool detecting Microsoft's own ATL.DLL from my SnapStream BeyondTV installation as being evil Spyware from another company. That's not good! I changed the recommended action to IGNORE for safety.
