One customer reported that his virus scanner falsely recognized the Wing Helper as a malware.

The virus scanner vendor confirmed that it was a "false positive" detection. They added the Wing Helper to the whitelist, and updated the virus signatures.

If you get the same issue, please make sure, that you have the latest signatures for your virus scanner installed.

If that doesn't help, please contact us as soon as possible with the name and the version of your virus scanner, and with the error message as reported by the software. We will resolve the issue as soon as possible!
