As title says, I have the autoupdate on launch option activated and when I started the program to get the new version 4.11.1, after downloading and executing the installer, Avast antivrus Free detected it as a possible threat and moved it into quarantine. No matter how I tried to download or install manually, or marking it as a false positive, the .exe was being blocked.

I had to disable the antivirus to install it.

Thank you for reporting this problem. Antivirus false positives can be very annoying. Unfortunately they happen from time to time and there's nothing I can do about it.

Hehe okay, thanks for the heads up.

I thought it was worth reporting since the rpevious versions it didn't happen.

I like to know about it, so thank you for reporting. It has already happened in the past. Hopefully it won't last long.
