Help, my anti-virus software flags CMC as having a virus!

Some users have reported that their anti-virus software incorrectly flags CMC.exe as containing a virus.  We have also seen similar false flags on the TurboActivate components (these handle product licensing).  To our knowledge, CMC has never contained a virus and we strive to keep it that way.

Windows SmartScreen also often issues a warning that “Windows protected your PC”, and that “Windows SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized program from starting.  Running this program might put your PC at risk.”  These warnings simply mean that we haven’t purchased a very expensive software signing certificate to make these scary warnings disappear.  To read more about the Windows SmartScreen message, click here.

We take your safety very seriously, and we understand how these types of warnings can be disconcerting. We follow up on every reported incident, though due to our program’s smaller user base and lack of exposure, CMC falls victim to a significant number of false threat warnings.

In a quest to minimize false warnings and ensure CMC is safe, we submit every zip and exe file to the for broad-spectrum scanning by nearly all anti-virus and anti-malware applications.  This verifies that CMC is safe for us to publish, and gives these tools a chance to scan CMC so you won’t have to be the first in line with a never before scanned executable.

If you experience issues and have concerns, please feel free to reach out to us for assistance.  We also encourage you to submit the entire zip file and CMC.exe to your anti-virus provider for complete analysis if you receive a threat alert.

While any alerts are most likely false, we always encourage you to practice safe computing, and to not take unnecessary risks.
