    Looks like your anti-virus software is working. I would accept that it has identified a threat and go somewhere else. If you don't trust your AV software it isn't doing you any good. Switch to one you trust. You could also email or IM the forum and get input from their admins to confirm that your AV software is wrong if that is what you suspect.

    Save your money Bert. I opened it on two PC’s and didn’t have any warnings. I’m not sure what’s going on.
