Hi there,
thanks for your great software. I just installed the current versions and Sophos Antivirus gives a security alert: C:\Windows\is-GCVD8.exe (suspicious behavior). Is this file save? It is digitally signed with a signature from Martin Prikryl.

Bye,

Most likely a false-positive warning. is-xxxx is installer's subprocess. Please report to Sophos. Thanks.

Sophos has confirmed the file to be clean. They will update their signature files.
