    I just downloaded the Windows version. My up-to-date AVG caught a Trojan horse "DNSChanger.V" on the .exe download. I'd like to try this out, but not willing to when that's detected. Any chance you could check the file and upload a clean version?

    Thanks,

    -Tim

      Hi Tim!

        Do not be afraid - it is a false virus detection. Obviously the distribution is clean and it was verified both by my antivirus (Symantec AntiVirus updated on daily basis) and Sourceforge's antivirus. A few users who use AVG already reported this problem. They usually suspend AVG (just in order to download MR) and then use the MR without problems.

        If you do not want to do that, please wait for MR 7.2. I plan to release .zip distribution as I do not expect AVG to fix this problem soon.

        Thank you for your interest in MindRaider!

      Yes, the same thing happened to me. I'm glad to see it's a false alarm. Thanks.
