    If you know the website of that company or use their product, please let them know of false positive.

    Apperantly Inno Setup is considered malware, which is ridicilous?!

    So many of these so-called “anti-malware” products are complete garbage.

    Please report it and let us know of their website so we can report it as well.

    thanks,



  • I did report the false positive. The product is Prevx1 v2.0.5 Build 6 and the web site is www.prevx.com

    @Teffy357:

    I did report the false positive. The product is Prevx1 v2.0.5 Build 6 and the web site is www.prevx.com

    seems to be fixed?

    Still, it is pretty incredible that someone can simply tag every install created by one installation tool as malware…
