I just sent this as a reply to 2 emails i've gotten recently, reporting viruses in skrommel's compiled ahk utilities (http://www.donationcoder.com/Software/Skrommel/).
"ugh, this antivirus false alarm stuff can be so stressful.
i assure you, there are no viruses in donationcoder.com software.
certain antivirus programs are super paranoid about the "autohotkey",
the language that these programs are written in. it's incredibly
frustrating when the antivirus tells people it has found viruses. if
you search the internet for the the alarm it gives you and
"autohotkey" youll probably find a bunch of people cursing out the
antivirus and having the same problem.
which antivirus program are you using by the way?
the utility that gave you the warning is from Skrommel's One Hour
Software page, one way you can know you can trust these is that all of
them you can download the source code version in .ahk form and compile
post this observance on the forum if you are still nervous so you can
get opinion of others. try to find option in your antivirus to not do
"heuristic" or other "guessing" which might be causing it to false
i apologize for any scare you might have -- try to see how painful
this is from our perspective when a virus scanning program goes around
telling people it has found viruses in our software.. the only thing i
can tell you is that these kinds of false alarms happen and you should
always use an antivirus program and always pay attention when it says
it finds something -- but never assume that just because it says it
found something that it really did."
