Perhaps reasonable adult conversation with them about the true nature of your files would do more good that calling them "(sorry) nerds" on this forum?

...maybe?

Because of some idiots in the past, and still some now, are creating virus's with AutoIt, giving it a bad name. So now most virus scanners have AutoIt marked as a trojan.

It's not all bad. Most of the AV companies have been responsive and professional when a false positive was pointed out to them. The important thing is to take notes while politely and professionally dealing with them when you find one.

I am personally not interested in seeing the "Oh, no! AutoIt flagged as virus!" postings on this forum at all. It's not interesting or helpful to post that. What I would like to see are posts where a false positive is reported and the response is documented. That lets us show publicly which AV companies are handling it well, and highlights the few that don't.

So, Wheebo, what was your actual communication to FileFront about the problem, and what was their response? Did they refer you to their AV provider? If so, did you follow up with them?

This statement is based on what ?

Based on the 20 virus scanners. 14 of them thought it was a trojan.

Please list the 20 scanners, including version, .dat file version, and what result they gave, plus what version of AutoIt the target .exe was compiled with. I would like to see if any of mine match your results (I rather doubt it).

It's a website that has 20 virus scanners, and scans a exe, and I tested it about a month ago...So I don't know version files and stuff, they were internet ones... :)
