My security program PrevX just signaled MoveOut and DimScreen as containing malware (a trojan). Both progs were downloaded direct from DonationCoder. This 'risk' was signaled immediately after a download and before installation in the case of MoveOut and after installation in the case of Dim Screen.

Strangely a download at the same time of "White" hasn't signaled anything (but I haven't tried to install it yet!).

Is PrevX wrong or ... :-/

Prevx is wrong, very wrong.  This is a false positive that is frequently triggered on developers using the Autohotkey programming langauge, and it's driving programmers crazy.

Just sent this to Prevx SUpport "I use Prevx 3. I just tried to download & install two programs available via Donationcoder.com called DimScreen & MoveOut. They are coded using Autohotkey. Prevx alerted me that they had malware. According to Donationcoder.com this is a false alert http://z.pe/F6K . Please up-date Prevx. Thanks."
