    the stat tracker developers respond all the time
    sounds like your anti-virus is picking it up as a false positive
    virus protector thinkgs its a virus

    sadly ya, plus i have 2, i have a windows defender and McAFee ( it came with the computer when i bought it)
    so i bet they are like mixing with eachother or something

    (i have done a few things to try and get recursion to work but still it wont even let me download because my computer detects a virus, i have updated my comp even and still no luck)

    Looks like McAfee is detecting it as some generic signature: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/...5dd6/detection

    If you use McAfee in 2019, then I'd honestly suggest replacing it with something else, or just using Windows Defender. The software causes more harm to your machine than it does help. It is also shipped with machines and itself acts like malware trying to convince you to send it money. Please follow these detailed instructions from John McAfee himself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKgf5PaBzyg

    Wow, the MSI hasn't changed in forever, and it's even signed with our cert.

    If you don't want to uninstall McAfee this article looks like it explains how to add an exception:

    I like this banner on the top of the page "Read the McAfee Consumer Products Refund Policy HERE"
