I wrote RainRGB4.exe, and I assure you it is fine. It was written using AutoIt, which is often false-flagged by antivirus programs. This is because AutoIt has the ability to simulate keystrokes, and has been used in the past by folks looking to write cheats for games and such. Up to you, but I'd recommend just ignoring the alert and allowing the program.

I second the information about the AutoIt. But jsmorley, maybe you can share the hashes for the .exe file in your post about RainRGB? So people can check it when they obtain skins online?
