    but seriously, it's a false positive, @daWallet didn't you fix this already in a new version?

    After some weeks they start to flag the win client again. :(

    When I change some bytes in the binary it is all good again for a month or so. Then one av software's heuristic claims a trojan and all the other companies copy sooner or later their finding. Spreads like a virus - what a joke.

    As long as they don't give me a hint which part they find suspicious I can't react properly.

    On purpose the client has the right to start several executables like the core, the miners and the plotter.

    I changed the prominent "Download Wallet" Button of the team website rightfully to the core version for now. In the near future I would like to have a choice there between all existing versions like core, Lex' and mine.

    A positive : they force me to go through the code and clean it up and improve it regularly.
