1. Norton prevented download – I ignored
2. Installed and launched and it displayed errors and would not start (Windows 7)
3. Uninstalled, not worth the fear.Jul 9, 2016 at 8:01 am #5241946sonycGuest

Hello everyone. This is Bitrot Detector’s author.
I’m sorry to hear about the scary messages some of you have received from your antivirus programs. It’s an unfortunate false positive, probably related to Bitrot Detector’s licensing and registration code. Of course I’d like you to be able to enjoy my program, but I wouldn’t blame you if you decided not to install it after these messages. Hopefully I can identify the reason for these messages and address it in the future.
For everyone else, enjoy! Also, thank you for the helpful feedback several of you have sent through email.Jul 10, 2016 at 2:14 am #5244987ayoubGuest
Thank you very much.Jul 10, 2016 at 6:07 pm #5250564GaryGuest
The Testing Windows Scheduler window did not ever close (remains up) on the system I tested this on. I am guessing that happens when the logon does not require a password.Jul 10, 2016 at 6:37 pm #5250710gt13013Guest
I have installed Bitrot Detector yesterday, and about 24h later Windows Defender tells me that it contains the trojan Win32/Rundas!plock
And this security page
says that it is a ransomware…Jul 10, 2016 at 7:06 pm #5250934Andres CabezasGuest
[@gt13013] Evidently, various other programs have been falsely detected as containing Rundas!plock:
Unfortunately, it seems to be a common problem for newly released programs with packed executable files (such as Bitrot Detector). I’m sorry you’ve encountered this, and I’ll work on reporting these false positives to various antivirus companies.Jul 10, 2016 at 7:09 pm #5250969Andres CabezasGuest

Gary: What version of Windows does your system have?
Also, if you exit Bitrot Detector and reopen it, does the Windows Scheduler window come up again? (You can exit it by clicking on the Exit button in the About tab.)Jul 10, 2016 at 7:19 pm #5251081Andres CabezasGuest
For anyone having trouble entering the license key:
After copying the license key, you can click inside the “License Key” text box and press the Ctrl + V key combination.
This text box doesn’t currently display a menu when you right click on it. One will be added to the next version, along with auto-pasting capabilities.Jul 11, 2016 at 1:38 am #5252616gt13013Guest
Thanks Andres for your clarifications !
