Is there some reason VVVVVV's exe would be triggering my antivirus? Soon after installing it nod32 flagged and deleted it, giving the reason as "Probably unknown WIN32.Crypt virus" . I've attached a screen shot.

Oh, very weird! Yeah, goes without saying but it's obviously a false positive. I'll look into this tomorrow and see if I can figure it out.

This is indeed strange.

I could be many things. Even just the filename.

If its a signature inside the binary that you AV is looking for and found, it may go away in our next patch as the code changes.
