I've been aware of sWeather for a number of years and am sure that skwire is a trustworthy developer, but is it possible that this file has been tampered with or are these all just false positives?
I just downloaded it and checked its SHA-256 hash against my local copy. If you're downloading it from my DonationCoder site, it has not been tampered with.

Thank you for taking the time to write. These are false positives that come and are due to the language my applications are written in (AutoHotkey/AHK). In the past, as a test, I've written a single line AHK script and compiled it:
That's it...one hotkey to exit the script. Even that wouldn't come up clean on VirusTotal. I know it's only my word, but I can state that there is no malware in any of my
applications that are downloaded directly from my site
. That said, I cannot vouch for the various software repository sites that list my software as some of them wrap my software into their adware-bundled installers. This perturbs me, but there is little I can do about it. For the record, I do not submit my software directly to any of these types of sites; they pick my programs up automatically.
Years ago, when the AV companies were a lot fewer, I used to contact them about stuff like this. Things would get fixed but, due to the AV updates, false positives would, inevitably, occur again. I got tired of dealing with it, so now I just shrug and trust that my body of work speaks for itself. I know it sounds terribly apathetic, but fighting it just isn't worth the cycles anymore. Cheers.
