EasyBCD 2.3 BETA Build 196 triggers antivirus blocks

I've also noticed that 2.3 BETA Build 196 inserts a web page link into to the Favorites folder, if I may recommend against that, or at least to give users an option at installation to CHECK that if they want to have a link inserted.

Interesting, thanks for the info. I think this happened with them before, but they un-blocked it themselves. Not sure why it's picking it up that way.
The favorites link is disable-able from the options dialog in EasyBCD and has been present since (I think) v1.0.

The file 'EasyBCD%202.3%20Beta%20-%20Build%20197.exe' has been determined to be 'FALSE POSITIVE'. In particular this means that this file is not malicious but a false alarm. Detection will be removed from our virus definition file (VDF) with one of the next updates.
Thanks, guys.
