    I have run regina38w64.exe through Avast! and Sophos anti virus scanners on Windows 7 and neither report an issue. Very likely this is a false positive. Leaving this open for a while for others to comment on if they have similar issues.

    Further to this issue I have found a free online virus checker that allows a file to be uploaded and scanned by 51 different anti-virus providers. regina38w32.exe passes all of them. If you wish to try it yourself the URL is: http://www.virustotal.com

    There is also the opportunity for users of Norton Anti-Virus to register the download as a false positive. For those users of Norton who get this error, please report as a false positive.
