There is no virus in GiantsHook. Some (not very good) virus scanners may incorrectly detect that there is one due to the fact that the PE header of Giants.exe had to be modified in order to load the GiantsHook .dll file at startup.

Where are you getting your files? It sounds like your not talking about GiantsHook, but using it as an example.

There's no "maybe" about it. There is no virus in GiantsHook. If you'd prefer not to download it, that's your choice.

OK I downloaded this and nothing was happened. My antywirus have very big heuristics so it was mistake about virus.

I download Giantshook from http://giantswd.org/ /download/patches All files in patches were supposedly virus but I thing they aren't

I am pretty sure that none of giantswd's downloadable content has any viruses, since they have to be approved before being added to the site. It might be something else on your computer the anti-virus is warning you about.

Let me guess, your using AVG Antivirus, do yourself a favour and throw that garbage in the bin. Mcafee is a good antivirus, or Symantec Antivirus.
