Hi

slightly off topic and I am not suggesting there is anything wrong with this software.

The point I wish to make to people here is that, scanning a piece of software that has not been on general release will never be found by antivirus programmes, because they work on the basis of signitures and if someone writes something unique the antivirus will not have a signature for the malware.

Again to be clear I am not suggesting for one second there is anything wrong with this software, I just wanted to point out a common misconception that a negative result from an antivirus tool means its ok, it does not mean there is no malware only that it has none the antivirus can recognise. Be careful what you download.

Regards

Kal

Hi

Actually I specifically said twice this was not about your software!!!!!!! so it did not directly or indirectly involve you, other tan it happened to occur in a thread in which you were the OP.

What I was commenting on was other contributers comments that because they have antivirus software they are ok. It is something I hear every day at work and something we pay 10's of thousands of pounds in Security awareness programmes to try and correct.
In this cast the advice was for free and stands.

Please do not be so precious, it really isn't necessary.

Regards

Kal
