The alert in your screenshot shown in green makes no sense to me.

I think most anti virus software just don't know how to determine if a file is okay, so with every update we release, they just assume it is a risk. Then after a while when more people have installed and used it without issues, they consider it safe.

I didn't get the message after the next two updates, so it was all good. Thanks!
