Well, check the reputation of Uniblue and you will find a lot of negative stuff said, see here for example>>http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/uniblue.com. I can not speak from experience here, never used any of their products, but enough bad has been said about them where I can't condone having anything of theirs on my system.
But I wouldn't say it qualifies as an "infection". You should be able to find it and remove it normally, if you do not want it, and I don't trust driver scanners as a rule.

Uniblue is pure rubbish. Do not know exactly what it is but clicked on it ages ago and had loads of problems connected to it. Do not touch it!
