Same with my computer. The virus (?) was recognized after the last AVG update.
Maybe it is an accidentally match, because the contents or structure of a binary file has not to follow any common rules.
But if it is copied to an .exe, we should be bothered. :shock:

Try updating AutoHotkey and recompiling your scripts.

A scan with a compiled script on the Online Malware Scan site, does not generate positives.
