Virus alerts (false positives, of course)

Some people have seen their anti-virus/spyware/malware software complain about my own software (such as DISE). More people will see this. That's just how it works for us small developers who don't have the money or reputation to be completely whitelisted from anti-virus companies.

For this this reason alone, I now provide an MD5 hash of my downloads on the download page. If your downloaded file's MD5 hash matches mine, then you can be assured that it contains no viruses, no spyware, no trojans, and no other type of junk you can dream of... Assuming you don't think that DISE itself is junk. In that case, just tell me how to improve it. :)

Message to certain people (not you, of course):
Please do not spread false information about my work. I always appreciate hearing something nicer than harsh complaints. :)


  1. Until v3 my antivirus warned that it was a virus...

  2. Using AVG Free, and proud to say it did NOT give out a warning with . At all. Though, that could be because I've made exceptions for this sort of thing. -shrug- Anyways, keep up the good work!
