I am not OP, but the app is 100% clean. Heuristics in an AV program will often scan an executable to look for "dangerous" machine code. It could be any code that deletes, renames, or otherwise changes files. That's probably why it's getting the false positive. As an IT professional for over 25 years (I was a Microsoft MCSE instructor, and IT director for a large insurance company), I can't stand A/V programs and "heuristics". I don't use A/V and pretty much exclude Windows Defender from almost everything. False positives for heuristics are extremely annoying- why? Because to the end user, it looks like the A/V software is a hero! It just saved your ass! But in reality, an overreaching heuristics algorithm will flag 10,000x more false positives than actual viruses. Better safe than sorry, right? Wrong. This is annoying and absolutely unnecessary- what are the odds, Remog, that you are the first victim of this virus on the internet? They make people paranoid, and then fall for a phishing e-mail because the A/V software didn't tell them not to. And clearly a lot of people have downloaded and used this niche program, and nobody has had any problem with root kits or anything- Jusst buy a 2TB backup drive, run it every night, and go for it. Reinstalling your OS is usually pretty easy. I do it every six months regardless just because I hate garbage on my desktop. I keep all my important files on another drive. My C: drive fails? No big deal, swap it out. I don't have any way to prove it's harmless (you can't prove a negative), but I have a strong feeling it's nothing but great, and I think he did a fantastic job.
