The latest version is flagged by AVG as containing a Trojan Downloader. The suspect file is mencoder.exe
SUPER is just a frontend for mencoder, if mencoder's infected just download a new one from the source, mplayerhq. just overwrite the old mplayer/mencoder files. I used to use super but stopped months ago when i switched to linux. if you, like me, aren't using winblows, you can still do this from the command line with mencoder. (it has versions for winblows, linux, and mac)
