The only reason I can think of is that it may be doing it on a name basis... since there are a few bad versions out in the wild not from here.

So from that I gather that since its not signed or because of the relatively low amount of people who use it(while growing) it could be thought of as malware thats gaining a foothold.(From their perspective) If more people who had avast said(via clicking on it) it was clean it would no longer be considered malware.
I wonder if I can get in contact with them and get this sorted out.

As an aside, I like the progress you continue to make with this project Viroman. I haven't tried the bleeding edge new versions. I've just been waiting for them to get down to the regular channels. Sweeper is a really nice addition to apup. It's great the way it can take an annoying unofficial build and crop out the files that don't belong. Hopefully the progress can continue. You and the release maintainers have come a long way. I was sensing a little frustration among a couple of them a few days ago. I realize what you guys do is a lot of work and you all don't get enough thanks. I wish more people would say it, as I'm sure there are many who do appreciate the efforts of the team here. Anywho, many thanks.

I realize that things have slowed down a significant amount since I got my job(I think its killing me slowly) but, I intend to plod along as quickly as I can.
ohh and , I guess something else happened with avast since I have not gotten in contact with them yet.
