AVAST or AVG indicate installer has a virus and will not let me download or install

if Avast or AVG give you a message along the lines of "We've safely aborted connection on static.cdesoftware.com because it was infected with URL:Mal.", this is due to a bug in AVG or Avast.

We contacted AVG and they indicated the issue was on their end and that they released on update late October to resolve.  AVG and Avast are the same computer, so we make the assumption they are or have fixed this in Avast as well.

CDE Software scans our files and installers frequently for viruses and malware prior to packaging and uploading. 100% of the time, these types of messages are what is called a False Positive. Please follow your manual for your Antivirus product or contact their technical support for assistance.
