Hi,

Just downloaded Quickconnect.exe from the website. When trying to run it, avast! Antivirus blocks it. It says, file is infected by "Win32:PUP-gen [PUP]"

Could you please check?

Hi Harald,

Indeed: Quick Connect VirusTotal.com check

We will send a false positive report to Avast. Thanks!

You can also just select ignore when Avast prompts you and remember this setting. That would be a good work around too.

You're never a loser until you quit trying.
