None of my programs have viruses. Some AV's give a false positive. :wink:

Which program is getting the false positive?

I haven't even heard of 2 of those AV's lol

and Emsisoft is famous for false positives.

Dont worry it is safe. They are flagging the program because the setup is compressed. Some of these AV's flag any exe that is compressed. :wink:
