5. A Note on False Positives from some AntiVirus and AntiSpyware softwares

Some False Positive reports occasionally pop up in different antivirus products in conjunction with this software. This is partially due to the compression and portability techniques used and partially due to a failure of some antivirus companies to fully test their virus definition updates before sending them out to users.

If you encounter a false positive, you may add the executable to your antivirus exclusion list and try again. Alternatively, you may inform your Antivirus Company regarding this false positive and wait for them to update their virus definition.

If you need any specific details on this, please feel free to write to us @
