False Positive or Your Personal Copy Infected

The official file from the real build has clean results except for a TrendMicro false positive. If your personal virustotal.com results don't look like the above, then your personal copy was infected by something else. If they look the same, then it's Artemis freaking out as it often does. McAfee's Artemis is a heuristic antivirus, meaning it doesn't rely on definitions, it attempts to guess if something is or isn't a virus based on a set of criteria. It's pretty bad at guessing.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
