Your antivirus has produced False Positive. All our programs are virus-free.

You can check any file in popular service http://www.virustotal.com . This service scans submitted files using dozens of different antivirus engines and the results are more reliable than any single antivirus can produce.

You may contact your antivirus vendor to fix their signature database to avoid false positive in the future.

Antiviruses pretty often produce false positives either by using "heuristics" which in the end *assume* that every program unknown to them is dangerous or using too short signatures that may repeat in many programs.

Anyway, don't worry, our programs are safe.
