The good news is that only F-Prot Antivirus (so far) has determined that the software contains malware. This scan does not include all antivirus vendors.
The bad news is that the only way to get your antivirus program to stop reporting the false positive is for you (or someone) to report the false positive to the antivirus vendor.
The unfortunate reality is that antivirus vendors sometimes jump on each others band wagons when it comes to malware so... it is entirely possible that another antivirus vendor will eventually report a problem with this version of AHK. The only thing we can do is to report the false positives to the antivirus vendors when we find them.
Them be my thoughts...
Again, thanks to you all.
