I did also. McAffe quarantined it.  I just turned off the live scan and  turned off the internet then re installed. then reactivated McAffe and  excluded the file in real time scan.  I just trust Autoit to not do anything like that.

You can prove dirty. You cannot prove clean.

If it annoys you that much delete it ^-^ and use mine Virustotal 0/55 and if it means it get's to a virus or trojan scan your complete computer. Maybe something is infecting it.

-Malwarebytes

But mine is not like yours 1.0.0.7 it is 1.0.0.6 ^^

It looks really like there is something defect with 1.0.0.7.

 

I hope i could help anyway

AutoIt3Help.exe

      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Icon=..\..\Downloads\ALlogo.ico #AutoIt3Wrapper_Compile_Both=y #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=y #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_HiDpi=y #AutoIt3Wrapper_Run_Au3Stripper=y #Au3Stripper_Parameters=/so /rm /pe #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** I found out that a lot of sources provided by AutoIT members like what I am recently using is the Metro UDF.
      On top of it, it always written the Region of code and red color. Then it also assign some value into some variable.
      May I know, what are their use and what is the purpose of doing?
      If I remove them, will affect the application?
      Thanks

      While Not _Login() _Initial_Check() WEnd Func _Login() Local $FLAG_LOGIN = _Password_Check() If @error = 1 Then _Close_Application() ElseIf @error = 2 Then _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", $FLAG_LOGIN) Return False Else ; $FLAG_LOGIN return TRUE _Metro_MsgBox(0, "", "Access granted!") Return True EndIf EndFunc  I do have a question regarding the While Not Loop.
      According to the code I post above, While Not _Login() is similar to While _Login() = False right?
      Which mean when _Login() return False and it will execute the _Initial_Check() function, but somehow the logic is not right and I also don't understand why While Not _Login() loop is executed as expected.
      What I wanna achieve is when _Login() is not success, which mean return False then it continue loop the _Login() function until it return True
      When It return True only execute the _Initial_Check() function.
      Please kindly clarify. Thanks

      Global Const $CUR_WA_FOLDER = @WorkingDir & "\Test Folder" Global Const $DIR_FOLDER = _ProgramFilesDir() _Initial_Check() Func _Initial_Check() If FileExists($DIR_FOLDER & "\Test Folder") = 0 Then Local $Decisions = _Metro_MsgBox(4, "", "Do you want to install Test Application?") If $Decisions = "Yes" Then DirCopy($CUR_WA_FOLDER, $DIR_FOLDER, 1) Else _Close_Application() EndIf EndIf EndFunc Func _ProgramFilesDir() Local $ProgramFilesDir Switch @OSArch Case "X32" $ProgramFilesDir = "Program Files" Case "X64" $ProgramFilesDir = "Program Files (x86)" EndSwitch Return @HomeDrive & "\" & $ProgramFilesDir EndFunc

      Is it possible to use Autoit to find every Monday within a date range? An example would be I want to find every Monday between 1/9/19 through 4/9/19. Then Autoit would give me all the dates on which Monday lands between those two dates. 
      Sorry but I don't have any code so far. I was wondering if it was even possible. I read the help file and I didn't see a function that could do that.
