Noise program
« on: August 16, 2008, 03:36:42 PM »
Hi Skrommel,

Noise disappeared from both my download file and execute file. As of Yesterday, Aug. 15th, Norton 360 is saying it's a virus???

Just thought you should know.

Someone should have posted a reply to this earlier.. What you are experiencing is a false positive virus alarm that seems to happen regularly with programs built using the AutoHotkey scripting language (all of Skrommel's software).  It's very annoying to developers and it's caused by lazy+stupid antivirus writers.  If you search the web and this forum you will more discussions of this problem.  There is no virus in the program.
