I installed RainRGB a long time ago, and i use BitDefender.
Today i tried to use RainRGB4 and it was indicated as Potentially Malicious Software.
So i came here to download again, i thought it's got infected somehow.
But sadly after download and extraction, it detected again.
Somehow i don't want to believe my antivirus program...

Please, can anyone confirm this?

Thank you very much!


It's fine. Antivirus programs have a long-standing on again, off again hatred of AutoIt, which RainRGB is written in. This is because AutoIt is used by kiddies writing "bots" for online games and the like, and from time to time anything written in it ends up getting flagged. You can just "exclude" it.

Well sadly, no matter how i exclude the exe and both the folder, the RainRGB.exe is not running. It seems to starting, but shuts down immediately i suppose, since i never see the actual window appearing. Just the hourglass.
So something really went wrong at the first detection and disinfection process. Or i don't know.

It's more likely you are calling it incorrectly in your skin. If you don't pass it the parameters it is expecting, it just silently exits.

No, it's not working. It's not even showing in the Processes.
I use this skin, since i downloaded it back then, untouched.

Well bummer. Maybe you have to go remove something from "quarantine" in your Antivirus or some such.

Yeah, it pretty messed up my things. I tried all the exlusion and recovery, restoring method, but no luck.
Maybe this is the time to make my EasyRGB pick 2.0 skin again :D
The first one is not functioning, as i want anymore, so here i go! :)

Anyways, thanks for the help, and the advices!
