New member here. Trying to decide on what software I want to use, but will not pay for anything I cannot try first which is why I want to try a demo.

I an unable to download this demo or earlier demos due to my antivirus saying the files have a virus. I am using Avast. May be a false positive, but not sure as the virus is Win32:Dropper-gen [Drp] which supposedly a really bad trojan if it is real.

Anyone else getting this warning with Avast or other AV software?

There was a false positive with Symantec a while back but that no longer flags it up, not sure about avast. All I can say is that it doesn't show up as having a virus for me using Norton or Microsoft Security Essentials.

Thanks!
 I will see if I can get it downloaded and scan it with a couple of other AV programs just to be safe.

You will have to make your own call however I am as sure as I can be that it's a false positive.

The latest demo is version 9.0.4 so you might want to find that in the demo release and download that. The software is now on version 9.

You will see a download link after all the information that has been added and changed.
