just curious if anyone has had issues with their Antivirus going off on it? i used winblows defender and it kept going off saying it was dangerous and it became a nuisance so i went to AVG antivirus and it was fine until the 324 release. now AVG is coming up saying it was reported to them to be malicious and is under investigation. i can tell the AV to run it anyways, but it is coming up every time now with the window saying its under investigation.. what the hell is up with that?

Asked many times, answered many times +1.
Do a search for "Antivirus" in the boards.
I am bored to explain it a bazillion times...

I find it interesting that lots of people say this... in all the years I've been using EUO, and it's a LOT of years now, I've never once had an antivirus program flag EUO. Granted I don't USE antivirus software because I think it's a stupid joke in general. And I would NEVER put anything of value on my personal computer at home... because that's just silly. And all my photos and videos are backed up on dvd/bluray. I've had 2 virus' in my life, and I download code examples from crazy shady sites a lot. Maybe I've just been lucky. Or I don't know they're there...? :) OR, I'm very good at reading, site rules, websites, and whatever, so I have a VERY good idea of what I'm getting myself into before I ever click a download link at any website. A little bit of searching and research goes a LONG way to understanding what you're doing, and how this all works. Would you go to IWANTTOSTEALYOURPASSWORD.COM and click download links? Or would you search around and make sure it was a legitimate website first? (I'm betting it's not. Please don't go there and click a download link and blame me if that happens.) lol ;)

It happened also in the past. It happens more nowadays because the heuristics get more and more hair-triggered because of selfjmutating code of viruses today. So it is only normal that more often the behaviour of euo gets flagged false positively.

But when this happens it is always an eye opener to upload the file to one of the multi scan websites... If only 1-3 flag it suspicious (often none flags it positively!) you can be pretty sure your alarm was a false positive. If let's say 30+ flag it not only as suspicious but outright positive, THEN i quite clearly know it is a bad file..
