It may not have occured to you but if you see the details of the stable installer on the list the first thing it jots down to install is systemprotector.lua a spyware file please fix this soo others do not get infected i had to remove the spyware today and do a full reboot into safe mode with networking and get webrootsecure anywhere free 1 year license to erase this nasty easter egg you may or may not have intended to attach to your installer.

Funny, everytime I read one of these virus warnings it reminds me of one of those reports of bigfoot sightings, or alien autopsy footage.

Well at least those try to provide some sort of proof anyway.

Could it be possible you picked it up somewhere else?


No?
Maybe you could you come up with a title less inflammatory?

Doing a little research on this virus, it seems to come within pirated versions of software. But, that's probably not the issue here.

But I didn't pirate it, a moderator linked me to it. Now I can name the topic, where you will see the moderator's post. Also if a moderator doesn't get along with a member, the moderator does not ever need to frame the member, for pirating and send a link to a infected version of the product.

@truefalcon this is the only official page to download construct https://www.scirra.com/construct2/releases/r190 . if you downloaded from anywhere else it's fake. the official download is not infected that + your wording and asking for free stuff is way people are accusing you of pirating.

Yes but I was only asking for the trial version, not to pirate it, so you can use that, lying through your teeth phrase all you like, but you and all of us here know it is you whom is lying through their teeth... Btw I am planning on buying the software... ._. _._ -.- .-. So let's just call this a misunderstanding now let's drop the thought of me pirating it. Oh and the link you provided is the one I was given and I went to, and got infected from.
